Primate Resource Center

Primate Resource Center
Objectives
The objective of the center is to resolve the issue of primate resources supply and establish an infrastructure for stable support of primate resources by establishing a foundation for mass production of high quality SPF primate resources.
  • Secure and breed specific pathogen free primate resources
  • Secure and breed massive amount of SPF primate resources
