CIHR’s Institute of Aging
The Summer Program in Aging (SPA) is the Institute of Aging’s (IA) flagship training program. It aims to provide graduate students and postdoctoral fellows involved in aging research with a program of advanced training that crosses disciplines, sectors, institutions, and geography. The program will bring together approximately 40 research trainees and numerous academic mentors to participate in interactive learning sessions. The focus of SPA 2021 is on longitudinal studies in aging, and will be led by Dr. Parminder Raina, Scientific Director for the McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA).
