Perkins


Together we can save lives.

Since its inception in 1998, the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research has made significant discoveries into the diseases that plague our families, in particular heart disease, diabetes and cancer. With over 200 researchers, scientists and doctors housed in two state-of-the-art research facilities, the Perkins creates a culture of innovation and collaboration. Teams dedicated to finding answers to defeat cancers are funded from the MACA Cancer 200 each year.
