Martine Puts

Associate Professor

“My primary goal is to improve the health and well-being of older adults.”

Dr. Martine Puts’s research focuses on geriatric oncology, as well as on the health and functioning of older adults.

In 2017, Dr. Puts was awarded an impact grant from the Canadian Cancer Society for a four-year research study on older patients with cancer. With older age, the risk of treatment complications may rise, and Puts’ study will help determine if a comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) and specialized care plan can improve the health and wellbeing of adults with cancer who are 65 years of age or older during their cancer treatments.

Dr. Puts has contributed to the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam that’s being conducted at Vu University Medical Centre. She was  awarded the CIHR New Investigator Award Prize for Excellence in Aging Research Medical Centre.
