Facilities and Resources

As a graduate student at York University, you have a variety of outstanding resources available to you to help in your pursuit of a degree.

The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is an Organized Research Unit at York University which provides a centralized and focused research emphasis on the importance of skeletal muscle to the overall health and well-being of Canadians. Skeletal muscle, 40 per cent of a human’s body mass, is a unique and large tissue that significantly contributes to an individual’s metabolism, locomotion, and overall quality of life.

The MHRC is composed of faculty members and graduate students in both Kinesiology and Health Science and Biology. Members study muscle biology in the broadest terms, including muscle development, disease, metabolism, blood supply, injury and regeneration, and adaptation to acute and chronic exercise. Approaches used by faculty and graduate students for the study of muscle include molecular, cellular and whole-body techniques.

The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University is an international leader in human and machine vision research. Uniting researchers from psychology, computer science & engineering, biology and kinesiology & health science, work at the centre is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, rooted in a fundamental research programme that merges techniques in human psychophysics, visual neuroscience and computational theory. Leading-edge facilities include a 3T fMRI scanner, a six-sided immersive virtual reality room, and a wide array of visuo-robotic platforms.

The YorkU Centre for Aging Research & Education (YU-CARE) and York University Graceful Aging Alliance vision is to promote graceful aging by approaching aging with active and positive responses to changes and challenges throughout the aging process on a societal and individual level. Its mission is to contribute to improved health and well being for older adults.  By promoting innovative research, education and advocacy on graceful aging we wish to introduce a radical attitude shift about aging and contribute to improved health for older adults in Canada and around the world.
