Spring 2015 Centre on Aging Colloquium Series- Optimizing Aging &Health: Methods and Applications

The Centre on Aging (COAG) is a research intensive centre at the University of Victoria (UVic), with a key emphasis is on advances in the health, cognitive vitality, and well-being of an aging community. This colloquium series has been developed to highlight both substantive and methodological innovations and applications in aging research. This spring, our colloquium series emphasizes aging-related research in patient-reported outcomes, biomarkers of aging, research methods, and technology & aging.
This series will be hosted in partnership with the Department of Psychology, Education and Training Unit of Population Data BC, the Island Health Research and Capacity Building Program,and the Integrative Analysis of Longitudinal Studies of Aging (IALSA; NIH/NIA 1P01AG043362) Research Network. download series flyer
