New studies will expand the Lab’s research agenda in collaboration with leading senior living stakeholders
ROCHESTER, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Well Living Lab, founded as a collaboration of Delos and Mayo Clinic, today announced the launch of a series of studies investigating the impact of indoor environments on the risk of airborne infectious diseases, sleep quality and cognitive function in older adults. The studies will employ the Well Living Lab’s field study platform, in collaboration with senior living owners and operators, to move its science beyond the walls of the Lab directly into senior living communities.
The research initiative will build upon the Lab’s recent groundbreaking study on aerosolized particle transmission in school classrooms as well as studies related to the convergence of building and health sciences across residential, office and other indoor settings. Outcomes of the research will include providing evidence-based insights to the senior living industry to help inform key decisions being made by owners and operators as the industry advances with a heightened focus on health, wellness, and safety.
