New hub in Western Australia to boost life sciences and innovation research

The Australian Government’s Medical Technology, Biotechnology, and Pharmaceutical (MTP) Industry Growth Centre – in collaboration with the Western Australian Government and The University of Western Australia (UWA), established the Western Australian Node (the WA Node) of MTPConnect in Perth recently, to support the state’s burgeoning life sciences sector.

The creation of a Western Australia life sciences precinct will bring together university researchers and industry partners to generate new business opportunities in medicine, health, agriculture and biodiversity.

Western Australia has an established background in health and medical research and this initiative will support the development of ground-breaking products and services to help improve the commercialisation of life sciences research.

The WA Government will commit $1.2million over four years and work with MTPConnect and UWA towards the acceleration of medical and biotechnologies through the creation of this life science precinct; establishing WA as a world leader in this area.
