LABORATORY EXPERIENCE

If you are interested in a student project or volunteering for laboratory experience, please contact the Laboratory Head you would like to work with. With new facilities, the latest technology and many opportunities for formal and informal collaboration it is an exciting time to study at the Perkins. We have entered a new era with our two new research centres at Nedlands and Murdoch. The building at Nedlands, the main headquarters of the Perkins, is located at the QEII Medical Centre.
