With hundreds of staff and students across our Nedlands and Murdoch campuses, we are able to provide opportunities for students enrolled at any university in courses including: Bachelor of Science with Honours; Bachelor of Medical Science; relevant honours programs; and PhD studies.
Our research focuses on the major diseases that face Western Australians today including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity, ageing and nerve and muscle disease. The cancers under study include breast, prostate, melanoma, colon, head and neck and liver. Our teams investigate the genetic causes of these diseases and develop new treatments to improve the quality and length of people’s lives.
If you are interested in a student project or volunteering for laboratory experience, please contact the Laboratory Head with whom you would like to work.
