Inquiring minds lead the way to better brain health and aging
Baycrest is home to the world-renowned Rotman Research Institute (RRI) and the Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CABHI).
The campus setting facilitates collaborations among scientists, clinicians, educators, students, clients, older adults and volunteers who come together to seek and discover ways to improve human brain function and the journey of aging.
RRI scientists study how people learn, think, remember and communicate as they age. They are shedding light on why these functions sometimes break down due to brain disorders like dementia and stroke, and finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat these conditions.
Spearheaded by Baycrest, CABHI was established in 2015 as the result of the largest investment in brain health and aging in Canadian history. The centre is unique collaboration of health care, science, industry, not-for-profit and government partners whose aim is to help improve quality of life for the world's aging population, allowing older adults to age safely in the setting of their choice while maintaining their cognitive, emotional, and physical well-being.
