Organization profile

Organisation profile

As Western Australia’s premier adult medical research institute our 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 this new knowledge into more effective treatments and cures. 

Closely linked to the major teaching hospitals, we are 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.  This enhances our ability to match individual patients to the treatments most likely to work for them with the aim of making personalised treatment a reality at last. 

The University of Western Australia, Royal Perth Hospital and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital were our founding partners and in July 2003, Fremantle Hospital also became a partner.
