While many institutions are not sufficiently equipped to fully support NHP research, the NPRCs provide the comprehensive research infrastructure and expertise necessary for appropriate care and research application of nonhuman primates.

A broad spectrum of support services are available including ABSL 3 and ABSL 4 laboratories, aerosol exposure facilities, Genetics and Genomics support, diagnostic and research pathology, imaging, immunology and neuroscience. Additionally, the NPRCs employ nationally and internationally recognized experts in the field of nonhuman primate management, production, care, psychological well-being, regulatory compliance and research utilization.
