Linear Clinical Research, the clinical trials arm of the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, has won a WA Industry Export Award for the fourth consecutive year.
Linear was established six years ago, and since 2012 has consistently won government awards in the Business Services or Health and Biotechnology categories.
Linear CEO, Dr Michael Winlo, said he was delighted that Linear had been recognised with a Business Services Export Award but noted that Linear was more than a commercial venture.
“Linear works closely with local physicians to run clinical trials for therapies developed around the world.“ Dr Winlo said.
“The real motivation was to ensure that local patients could get access to new and innovative therapies that wouldn’t otherwise be available.”
Perkins Director and Chairman of Linear, Professor Peter Leedman, congratulated the team for the achievement.
“It is a credit to Dr Winlo and the whole team for the high quality that Linear delivers to the sector,” Professor Leedman said.
Proteomics International, which is housed at the Perkins headquarters in Nedlands, won the top honour Exporter of the Year.
The Australian Export Awards is a national program that recognises and honours Australian companies engaged in international business who have achieved sustainable growth through innovation and commitment.
