10:00 - EVENT - Discover the Perkins : The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is opening its doors to the WA community on Saturday 16 November from 10am - 3.30pm, as part of Open House Perth Website | More Information
The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is opening its doors to the WA community on Saturday 16 November from 10am - 3.30pm, as part of Open House Perth. The 2019 Perkins open day, entitled ‘Discover the Perkins’, is posing the question “What if...?” Throughout the day, listen to presentations by Perkins researchers in the McCusker Auditorium. Perkins Director, Professor Peter Leedman will give the first talk of the day at 10.50am, posing the question, “What if you could help shape our future?” Don a lab coat and become a scientist for the day, exploring the state-of-the art medical research laboratories. Hear from the leading experts on how they are tackling some of the hardest-to-treat diseases affecting our community, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and rare genetic diseases. You will see first-hand how your support can drive forward the groundbreaking work happening right here in WA at the Perkins. “Without medical research, there would be no lifesaving discoveries. And without the incredible support and generosity of the people of WA, there would be no medical research”, Professor Leedman said. As well as touring the labs, you will have the chance to ‘speed date a researcher’, giving you the opportunity to ask the experts about their work and how it will impact our future health. Take a virtual reality tour of the life of cell travelling through the body. Then sit down at the lab bench and take part in interactive activities and workshops in the Lotterywest BioDiscovery Centre. Many of the activities have limited spaces, so be sure to book early at https://community.perkins.org.au/discover-the-perkins All funds raised on the day will go directly towards providing the Perkins with a Shaker Incubator; a vital piece of equipment which looks like a small oven and can ‘shake n’ bake’ buckets of bacteria for use in experiments, potentially cooking up a future breakthrough treatment for cancer or diabetes.
