The Seven NPRCs

The National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs) are a national network of dedicated teams fighting diseases from Alzheimer's to Zika and improving human and animal health and lives worldwide. In partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and others, the NPRCs conduct and enable studies that make breakthrough discoveries of causes, preventions, treatments and cures possible. The highly regulated study of nonhuman primates is critically important, as it often precedes clinical trials in humans and cannot be replicated any other way.
