THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
How you've helped
Many of you responded to our Emergency Face Shield appeal. And for that, we are very grateful. Perkins biomedical engineers collaborating with other researchers in facilities around Perth put their skills together to create a locally produced face shield to help protect healthcare workers from COVID-19.
The biomedical engineers are a wonderful addition to the Perkins. They bring a unique set of skills that is focused on creating devices and models to address medical research conundrums. So they were perfectly placed to respond to the challenge of creating a face shield for our frontline health workers and other medical professionals.
Thank you so much for your support of this important initiative. If you would like to support the Perkins during COVID-19, you can donate now.
