The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) is a large, national, long-term study/platform that will follow approximately 50,000 men and women between the ages of 45 and 85 at study inclusion for at least 20 years. The CLSA collects information on the changing biological, medical, psychological, social, lifestyle and economic aspects of people’s lives.
This funding opportunity is to provide funding to support research in any area related to health using the available alpha numeric CLSA data. Linkages between CLSA and other data from any other data sets (e.g. environmental data) are accepted. We also encourage the use of CLSA data to answer a population health intervention question and/or incorporate health equity analyses into research projects. In addition, this funding opportunity aims to support research incorporating sex- and gender-based analysis (SGBA).
Independent researcher and must be appointed at an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution at the time of application.
