“To the team at Perkins (especially Judi!): we’d like to extend a huge thanks for giving us such a meaningful insight into the essential work the Institute does. The passion of your staff and researchers was clear – even down to one of the team doing some extraordinary catering!

For us, it was a great chance to reflect on diversity, teamwork, innovation and making a difference – through the prism of DNA and science. As mentioned on the day, Western Power staff have personal experience with the Institute’s work, and we’ve supported events in the past. We look forward to continuing our involvement and wish you many breakthroughs!”
