Since 1998, the Perkins has grown to become one of the nation’s leading adult medical research centres, where a close-knit team of more than 250 work together to defeat the major diseases that impact our community. Whilst Perkins conduct research into a range of diseases, their focus is on Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer & Diabetes.
With two new state-of-the-art research facilities (Perkins North & South), co-located with the major teaching hospitals, the Perkins is creating a culture of innovation and collaboration to deliver better patient outcomes faster.
Perkins North is an 11-storey building located at the QEII Medical Centre, Nedlands which houses Perkins research laboratories that investigate a range of diseases including cancer, leukaemia, diabetes and melanoma.
Perkins South is a 6-storey building located on the Fiona Stanley Hospital Campus at Murdoch. The facility can accommodate up to 363 research and academic staff.
