This article from Canada Newswire discusses funding for the new Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) program; only $400,000, but it's a start. This is a government program, directly by the Canadian equivalent of the NIH (more or less). As I've said before, this sort of money is a drop in the bucket compared to funds directed to better known health issues. As regular readers know, one of the drums I beat on is the call for better public, corporate and governmental recognition and appreciation of aging and anti-aging research. This must happen for progress towards a cure for aging to be comparable to progress in the fight against AIDS and cancer.
