The mission of the Quebec Network for Research on Aging is to support interdisciplinary research on aging and to promote the maintenance of a critical mass of researchers, help increase overall research capacity, and stimulate the creation of research partnerships in this field.

The Network’s ultimate goal is to increase knowledge about the biological, clinical, populational, social, and societal aspects of aging. This knowledge can then be used to help promote successful aging, to prevent or delay the expression of the components of frailty and its harmful effects, and to improve the health care and services provided to the elderly.

We wish to underline, with this message, the important and unique contribution of Dr. Serge Gauthier as a member of the steering committee of the Quebec Network for Research on Aging from 2011 to 2020. His comments and suggestions have always conveyed a vision of excellence for the Network and we sincerely thank him for this.

Dear Serge, we wish you a safe journey on the gentle path of a well-deserved retirement!
José A Morais and Pierrette Gaudreau, co-directors of the Network.

Portail sur le vieillissement optimal de l’Université McMaster, Hamilton

Le partenariat du RQRV avec l’Optimal Aging Portal (Université McMaster, ON) s'est concrétisé par le lancement du Portail sur le vieillissement optimal de McMaster.

Il nous ouvre une nouvelle fenêtre de rayonnement à l’international, visitez-le.


As a precaution and benevolence, and in accordance with the recommendations of Health Canada and the Ministry of Health and Social Services of Quebec, we ask the research teams to suspend any research project funded by the RQRV and involving face-to-face interactions with older adults.

Long-distance interactions, via a communication platform (e.g. Zoom, Skype, etc.), are allowed provided that they do not cause anxiety in these people.
