HARRY PERKINS INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL RESEARCH

Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is Western Australia’s premier adult medical research institute. Our mission is to improve the health of Western Australians through cutting edge research that translates into new ways to prevent and treat disease. The research at the Perkins focuses on the major diseases that face Western Australians today including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity. The cancers under study include breast, prostate, melanoma, colon, head and neck, liver and leukaemia.

Formed in 1998 with a vision of fostering a high-level of collaboration between the State's medical researchers, our team has made, and continues to make, a number of internationally-important discoveries.
