Who we are
Ageing begins at birth and is our response to the multitude of factors and influences faced throughout our life trajectories. The LIFE Research Institute assembles researchers and partners with diverse perspectives who work collaboratively to understand how we are guided along the unexpected trajectories of life. We expect this knowledge will transform how we view the roles for individuals and society in ageing and create new opportunities for life fulfillment and well-being. We want to inspire individuals to live the longest, best lives possible honouring the many varied choices along the way.
What makes us different
We start from concrete questions that are important for health and well-being and we create teams to answer them. By adopting a multi-sectorial approach that includes academics and students from various disciplines, government agencies, the private sector and communities, we are able to develop knowledge, innovate in practice and create evidence-based policies.
What we do
The LRI was created to foster real changes in individuals' experiences by working with stakeholders from many sectors. Its ultimate objective is to leverage the extraordinary knowledge that is created by uOttawa researchers and their collaborators to impact whether individuals live long, live well, and live with voice and choice.
