Chairs

Canada Research Chair Level 1

Experimental Cognitive Science (chairholder : Pierre Jolicoeur)

Mission : the Chair aims to study attention in humans and its relationship to perception and reflection. The results of this research will allow a better understanding of the human response to simultaneous demands for attention.


Habib Bénali
Biomedical imaging and healthy aging
(chairholder : H. Benali)

Mission : to propose an integrated biomedical approach, from the modeling of brain activity dynamics to the physiological model observed by neuroimaging.


Cognitive neuroscience of aging and brain plasticity (chairholder : S. Belleville)

Mission : to study how memory and the brain change and adapt with age with the ultimate goal of developing strategies to prevent diseases associated with aging.

Chantal Dumoulin
Urogynecological health and aging (chairholder : C. Dumoulin)

Mission : to better understand urinary incontinence, prevent it, treat it, and determine which women might benefit from pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation.

Julien Cohen-Adad
Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (chairholder : J. Cohen-Adad)

Mission : to develop new technologies capable of revealing with even greater precision the complex architecture of the human nervous system. For example, by using highly detailed biophysical models in conjunction with advanced image processing tools, it is possible to “see” the health of our neurons from simple MRI scans.

Health Research Fund Chair – Quebec

Transforming research for a healthier future and improved quality of life for older adults (chairholder : C. Tannenbaum)

Mission : to test the effectiveness of new interventions targeting patient, health care professional, and health care system behaviors to reduce the incidence and impact of urinary incontinence, polypharmacy, and medication-related cognitive impairment in older women and men.


Philanthropic Chairs

Research Chair in Nursing Care for Older People and their Families (chairholder: Anne Bourbonnais)

Mission : to contribute to the well-being and improvement of the quality of life of older people and their care partners.

Michel Saucier Pharmaceutical Chair in Health and Aging (chairholder : C. Tannenbaum)

Mission : contribute to the well-being and improvement of the quality of life of the elderly and their families.


Jean-Pierre Gagné
Caroline Durand Foundation Chair in Hearing and Aging (chairholder : J-P. Gagné)

Mission : this chair aims to minimize the consequences of hearing loss, reduce the isolation of people affected by it, optimize communication between them and thus improve their quality of life.


Mirella and Lino Saputo Chair in Cardiovascular Health and Prevention of Cognitive Disorders (chairholder : L. Bherer)

Mission : to improve our understanding of cognitive disorders, to develop curative and preventive approaches and to understand the effects that physical exercise can have on cardiovascular health in order to develop intervention programs to slow or halt the progression of cognitive disorders.


Raquel Fonseca
Research Chair on Intergenerational Economic Issues (chairholder : R. Fonseca)

Mission : the Chair contributes to the advancement of scientific knowledge and provides decision-makers with enlightening analyses of the intergenerational economic issues related to demographic change.

Thien-Thanh, Dang-Vu
Concordia University Chair in Sleep, Neuroimaging and Cognitive Health (chairholder : T. Dang-Vu)

Mission : to better understand the mechanisms of sleep disorders and their impact on cognition, as well as to test the effect of sleep interventions on brain health and cognitive decline associated with aging, using a multimodal approach that combines neuroimaging, neurophysiology and behavioral assessments.
