The Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre Unit (QEIIMC) Unit of the School of Medicine and Pharmacology is located in the new Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research Building on the QEIIMC Campus in Nedlands, Western Australia.

The QEIIMC Unit is made up of clinicians, scientists and educators, and offers unique opportunities for students, scientists and doctors interested in pursuing careers in research and training in the biomedical and health sciences disciplines. The Unit also delivers a substantial teaching program to undergraduate and postgraduate students in both the clinical and laboratory setting.  

The Perkins Building is a focus for biomedical research on the QEII Medical Campus and our Unit encourages collaboration and cross-pollination between research groups. Shared equipment, seminar series and the workplace environment (multi-group laboratories, meeting space and social facilities) are designed to bring the major tenants together - The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research (HPIMR) , Lions Eye Institute (LEI), UWA Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA), Institute of Respiratory Health.

The Perkins Building is adjacent to the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, where most of our Clinical Academics practice, teach and supervise. This co-location offers excellent opportunities for translational research and clinical teaching.

The QEIIMC Unit is committed to the University's strategic goals of:-

  • Internationally renowned research
  • Leadership in education
  • Community and global engagement
through cooperation and collaboration with clinicians, scientists and researchers at the QEII Medical Centre Campus and the wider health sector and science communities - within Western Australia, Australia and internationally.
