The Centers mission is to provide the appropriate environment to support outstanding biomedical research directed towards significant human health issues and nonhuman primate health and biology. To meet this mission, the WaNPRC supports biomedical research activities, professional research staff, specifically bred and maintained nonhuman primate colonies, and dedicated facilities and equipment required for nonhuman primate research protocols. Research To support translational and pre-clinical biomedical research utilizing nonhuman primates with emphasis in the areas of AIDS-related research, developmental biology, functional genomics, immunology, reproductive biology, neurophysiology, international studies, transplantation and stem cell biology, virology, and development of primate disease models. These major areas of research serve as focal points for the core and affiliate research program. Resources To provide a complete, inclusive spectrum of resources necessary for successful implementation of nonhuman primate protocols. Access To provide efficient and effective access to the resources of the Center to the local, regional, national, and international primate research community. Operational Efficiency To continue to become more cost efficient, evaluating long-term research resource needs, and implementing organizational and resource changes to best accommodate those requirements. Scientists To maintain and expand the Center€™s affiliate and core scientist roster to increase the use of nonhuman primate models in biomedical research as well as provide additional scientific resources for the broader research community. Dissemination of Information To disseminate information regarding nonhuman primate use and research findings to scientists throughout the biomedical research community. Training Opportunities To provide comprehensive and appropriate training programs for scientists, staff, and students regarding nonhuman primate research, safety, biohazards, and the proper care and use of nonhuman primates in research.
