The McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA) provides seed funding to support interdisciplinary research on aging led by McMaster researchers from across all six McMaster Faculties. Within MIRA, the Labarge Centre for Mobility in Aging (LCMA) supports research focused on understanding and improving mobility in aging, which encompasses physical, community and social mobility.
Catalyst Grants offer the opportunity to conduct collaborative research focused on aging and to incorporate end-users, including older adults, care providers, and other stakeholders into research design, execution and dissemination. Further, these grants are intended to stimulate new collaborations and allow researchers to collect preliminary data to support future proposals for full-scale studies, conduct feasibility/pilot studies, or scaling of interventions.
