The Bloomfield Centre for Research in Aging (BCRA) was founded in 1989 thanks to a generous donation from Mrs. Neri Bloomfield and the Eldee Foundation. The purpose of the BCRA is to promote research into all aspects of aging, concentrating on cellular and molecular mechanisms of healthy aging and age-related diseases. It is located on the fourth floor of the Lady Davis Institute at the Jewish General Hospital, a teaching hospital of McGill University in Montreal.
The BCRA is the only institution of its kind in Canada, a centre focused on aging and neurodegenerative diseases with expertise that includes molecular studies of the pathophysiology of disease, clinical and imaging studies of Alzheimer's Disease, population studies, and the evaluation of health delivery systems for the elderly.
Funding for research activities comes from international organizations, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute on Aging, the Alzheimer’s Association, and the American Health Assistance Foundation in the United States, the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada, the Fonds de Recherche Québec - Santé , and the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, along with private donations.
