Description

The Institute is not for profit and is fully tax deductable. It mainly relies on competitive, philanthropic, contracted and tendered funding opportunities.


The Institute concentrates its research in several key divisions. These divisions cover ageing research from both a public and preventive health perspective, service development, biomedical and from a clinical perspective. NARI currently employs over fifty staff and at any one time manages over fifty research projects. These range from large competitive NHMRC projects to commissioned and self-initiated research. NARI's funding is mainly derived from competitive government and other grants and it also receives a small amount of infrastructure funding from the state Department of Health (Victoria).


NARI has developed an excellent reputation for high quality and professional research and is noted for its ability to deliver projects on time and with a rigorous methodology and thorough presentation. Researchers are often approached to address local and international conferences, meetings and community events etc in the area of their particular research interest. NARI also provides media commentary on issues of topical interest in ageing. NARI is a member of the Australian Association of Medical Research Institutes.
