The Australian National Phenome Centre

We invite key representatives of the Committee for Perth membership to attend a Food for Thought Leaders Luncheon to hear about the world-leading Australian National Phenome Centre (ANPC) located at Murdoch University.

The Centre is one of the most significant health research collaborations realised in Western Australia. The ANPC is supported by all Western Australian universities, medical research institutes, and numerous other partners, and is a core platform of the Western Australian Health Translation Network. Using precision medicine, the Australian National Phenome Centre will revolutionise the way in which disease is detected, treated and prevented.

Having found during our Hashtag Perth project that Perth leads in many sectors, we are pleased to host a briefing which shines a spotlight on the capability of Perth and its universities.
