Major data release underway for the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging
Researchers now have the opportunity to analyze data from more than 51,000 participants in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). The spring 2016 data release includes questionnaire data, as well as physical assessment and hematological biomarkers from participants who visited CLSA Data Collection Sites, including the one located at McMaster Innovation Park. This week, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research launched a funding opportunity inviting Canadian researchers to submit health research projects that make use of the available data. The selected projects will help find ways to improve the health of Canadians by better understanding the aging process and the factors that shape the way we age.
