The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) was founded on 16 April 1975 when an agreement was signed between the University of Melbourne and Mount Royal Hospital to establish a National Research Institute for the purpose of gerontological research and geriatric medicine.
As a not-for-profit, self- funded research institute, NARI is dedicated to improving the health and care of older people.
The organization aims to be the centre of excellence in Australia for research into ageing and improving the quality of life and health of older people. NARI conducts research in the community, hospital and residential care settings.
