At the Oregon National Primate Research Center,
they seek to accelerate scientific discovery, foster innovative research, and develop biomedical
technologies that help understand, promote and improve human health and well being worldwide.
They recognize the ethical concerns raised by animal research,
and that is why they provide humane and compassionate animal care while
conserving their resources for only the most essential research endeavors.
The twelve veterinarians and more than 100 full-time support staff of the
Division of Animal Resources are committed to preserving
the health and welfare of their 4,200 nonhuman primates.
