The Innovation Hubs also include CyberWest, the WA Data Science Innovation Hub and the WA Creative Tech Innovation Hub.

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