Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Perron Institute for Neurological and Translational Science (formerly the Western Australian Neuroscience Research Institute – WANRI) is Western Australia’s longest established medical research institute. One of our special strengths is the depth of links between the institute’s laboratory research and its 15 specialist clinics. We undertake cutting edge research on a broad spectrum of conditions including stroke, Parkinson’s, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis. This multidisciplinary approach enables us to translate research outcomes into treatments aimed at providing a better quality of life for millions of people around the world who suffer with devastating neurological conditions.

The Institute is affiliated with The University of Western Australia's Centre for Neuromuscular and Neurological Disorders.  The Centre's research publications are available in this repository via a search by Centre name.
