The Lifespan Centre

The Jack and Nora Walker Canadian Centre for Lifespan Development Research is a multidisciplinary collaborative effort dedicated to studying human development across the lifespan, with special strengths in childhood and adolescence. The Centre involves over 60 faculty members representing Social Sciences, Applied Health Sciences, Education, and Humanities, as well as 40 community agencies, who collaborate to investigate psychological, social, health, neurophysiological and educational aspects of life from infancy to old age.

The Centre houses specialized labs, observation rooms, interview and testing rooms, as well as computer labs for large-scale studies.

The full list of participating faculty researchers, labs and community research partners can be found on this page.

Knowledge translation and mobilization are very important parts of our mandate and we work to make our research openly available in a variety of formats. For example, we produce downloadable research summaries for each lab held within the Centre - if you are interested in viewing these please visit the Our Research page. For more information on our knowledge translation and mobilization work, please contact the Centre's Knowledge Translation Officer, Jayne Morrish -
