ABOUT US

The Institute for Respiratory Health’s clinical trials facility is one of Australia’s largest and most highly-regarded in helping pharmaceutical companies and research institutes test the safety and efficacy of new medical treatments, drugs or devices to treat chronic lung disease.

Operating for more than two decades, our facility conducts successful world-leading research for local and international clients in all areas of respiratory conditions including asthma, COPD, alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, bronchiectasis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), cystic fibrosis, vaccines and COVID-19 home monitoring.

Our facilities are state-of-the-art, operating out of the Harry Perkins Institute and at the hub of Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, Western Australia. Our commitment to our people, sponsors, stakeholders and, most importantly, our patients remain as strong as it was on the first day of our journey.
