The Centre on Aging receives requests to join interdisciplinary research teams as a collaborator. These arrangements tend to involve in-kind rather than monetary support. Centre personnel may attend research team meetings, review funding applications, and support research stages such as participant recruitment and knowledge translation. In some cases, the Centre may also develop knowledge syntheses to support research or practice. Here we include some key collaborations the Centre has been involved in.
