The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, formerly the WA Institute of Medical Research, is Western Australia’s premier adult medical research institute. Its priority is to recruit and build internationally renowned highly skilled research teams, comprising doctors, scientists, biostatisticians and pathologists, working together with cutting edge technologies to make new discoveries and translate new knowledge into more effective treatments and cures.
Closely linked to the major teaching hospitals, it is uniquely positioned to fast track the development of new treatments and new ways to diagnose cancer and other diseases, including tests that enable doctors to select the best approach for each patient.
In 2010, it established Linear Clinical Research Ltd, WA’s only dedicated and Australia’s most advanced early phase clinical trials facility. While it conducts research into a range of diseases, the institute focuses on cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes.
