How does my company's support help medical research in WA?

Did you know that around 90% of medical research grant applications are knocked back? And in WA, that percentage is even higher. There simply isn’t enough federal government funding to go around.

Your investment in the health and wellbeing of our community helps to fill the funding gap that researchers in WA are fighting every day. Your vital support means that researchers can spend more time in the lab, and less time wondering where their next funding lifeline is coming from.

Your company’s philanthropic investment in medical research in WA shows your commitment to their health and wellbeing. As a Perkins Partner, you’re a part of the innovation and collaboration that drives our mission, and together, we’ll be helping to keep families together for longer.
