The Perkins is committed to the responsible conduct of all our research.

Our research conforms to the principles of the NHMRC Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018 (the 2018 Code).


Perkins is committed to ensuring the ethical, humane and responsible care and use of animals for scientific purposes.

The Perkins recognises the value of research involving animals and supports the ethical use of animals for scientific purposes where such use is justified and complies with the WA Animal Welfare Act (2002) and the NHMRC Australian Code for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes, 8th Edition, 2013 (The Code).

The Perkins Animal Ethics Committee (AEC) ensures, on behalf of the Institute, that all activities involving the care and use of animals comply with The Code and provide for the welfare of those animals.
