Who We Are

The GERAS Centre for Aging Research is part of Hamilton Health sciences and affiliated with McMaster University.

Established in 2013, the GERAS Centre for Aging Research is dedicated to improving the lives of seniors living with complex medical needs. Located within St. Peter’s Hospital, our research focuses on improving quality of life, accelerating innovative solutions, and programs to support seniors and families.

GERAS is at the forefront of several innovative research initiatives focused on maximizing the resilience of vulnerable older adults. With our rapidly aging population, and with more and more people living with chronic disease, our work has never been more important.
