Mission

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.

On October 20, 2018, Pierrette Gaudreau was awarded the Contribution to Gerontology Award by the Canadian Association on Gerontology (CAG).

The honorary plaque was presented by Professor Suzanne Dupuis-Blanchard, President of the CAG, at the organization's 47th Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting. This mark of recognition is shared with all members of the Network.
