The MTPConnect WA Life Sciences Innovation Hub is a partnership between MTPConnect, the Western Australian Government and the University of Western Australia (UWA) to accelerate the growth of the state's MTP sector, create new jobs and support economic diversification. 

Located at UWA in the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research Building, Nedlands, it is one of the four WA Government Innovation Hubs that deliver programs to connect the innovation community, build capacity and new skills, attract investment, and foster commercialisation. The Innovation Hubs include the WA AustCyber Innovation Hub and the WA Data Science Innovation Hub.

The MTPConnect WA Life Sciences Innovation Hub team, Dr Tracey Wilkinson and Rebekah Craggs (MTPConnect) working together with Professor Kevin Pfleger (UWA), manage and drive a varied and valuable annual program of activities for the Hub that deliver growth opportunities for the WA MTP sector.
