The enterprise is being sparked by businesswoman and McMaster graduate Suzanne Labarge. She has given a gift of $10 million to McMaster for a program sponsoring interdisciplinary research and a website portal on healthy aging that will provide accessible information for the public as well as health care professionals, researchers and policy makers. The program is called the Labarge Optimal Aging Initiative.

“The Labarge Optimal Aging Initiative will allow prominent researchers at McMaster to focus their research more closely on the aging population,” said Susan Denburg, associate vice-president, academic for the Faculty of Health Sciences and university lead for the initiative.  “The gift will seed multiple research projects focusing on areas of relevance to seniors, creating incubators for interdisciplinary innovation.”
