Welcome to Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing (MISA) – (Institiúid Mercer um Aosú Bisiúil) – at St. James’s Hospital in Dublin, Ireland. You are very welcome here.
MISA is a state-of-the-art facility for integrated clinical services and a hub for world-leading research. We promote coordinated patient care, coupled with far-reaching educational and training programmes.
Enabled by the tremendous generosity and support of Mr. Chuck Feeney, The Atlantic Philanthropies, the Department of Health and the HSE, MISA represents the culmination of more than thirty years of planning.
In 2016, MISA was commissioned by President Michael D. Higgins who spoke of the opportunities for elderly citizens to enjoy active and fulfilled lives. He noted, “In a world where we can expect to see more and more people leading significantly longer lives, innovative and creative thought around the ageing process will become increasingly important”.
Our goal is to advance the conditions for successful ageing.
