Monash Ageing Research Centre (MONARC) is based at the Kingston Centre, a stand-alone sub-acute facility based in Cheltenham (Victoria) which provides Geriatric Evaluation and Management, Aged Persons Mental Health, and Rehabilitation. MONARC is part of the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health.
MONARC has three research themes: Geriatric Medicine (led by Professor Barbara Workman), Aged Persons Mental Health (led by Dr Chris Plakiotis), and Movement Disorders and Gait (led by Prof Robert Iansek).
MONARC aims to improve the quality of care and address gaps in health service delivery for people with diseases associated with ageing and neurological disorders via the conduct of high-quality clinician-led research, which is focussed on the rapid transfer of research findings into clinical management.
