Melbourne Disability Institute

Melbourne Disability Institute, is an interdisciplinary initiative based at the University of Melbourne, established in May 2018.

The Institute builds on several initiatives and partnerships in place at the University and draws together a range of researchers with an interest in disability. It's primary vision is to transform the social and economic health and wellbeing of people with disabilities through research, teaching, training and policy-relevant knowledge translation.

MDI aims to address complex, systemic and cultural problems facing people with disability, their families and carers. The knowledge produced through research will be translated into policy and practice through a process of continuous engagement and innovation.
