The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research conducts innovative research into the diseases that most affect our families in the WA community and the world at large.
The Perkins was established in 1998 to unify Western Australian scientists in a collaborative research powerhouse. In the years since, we have grown to become one of the nation’s leading medical research centres, where a close knit team of more than 250 research and trial staff work together to defeat the major diseases that impact our community – diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and rare genetic diseases.
Everyone at the Perkins is driven by a desire to keep families together for longer, but we cannot do it alone. It is thanks to support from people like you that we can continue our life-saving work. The Perkins is proof that when you put world class scientists, doctors and researchers together in state-of-the-art facilities with a culture of innovation, amazing things happen.
