Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging
The Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA) provides the infrastructure and support that facilitates collaboration amongst Canada’s top dementia researchers. By accelerating the discovery, innovation, and the adoption of new knowledge, the CCNA positions Canada as a global leader in increasing understanding of neurodegenerative diseases, working towards prevention, and improving the quality of life of those living with dementia.
The goal of the CCNA is to offer a collaborative and synergistic space that attracts the best researchers in the field. Together, researchers work on bold and transformative ideas to positively impact the quality of life and the quality of services for individuals living with neurodegenerative diseases.
Research within the CCNA
is organized into three themes:
- Prevention – preventing the disease from developing
- Treatment – delaying the development of the disease
- Quality of Life – helping individuals, caregivers, and the health system cope with diseases that have already developed
