Primate Center

As one of the eight National Primate Research Centers in the United States, the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) provides Nonhuman Primate (NHP) resources for the very best scientific programs, both within the Oregon Health & Science University community and beyond. The ONPRC has a unique identity linked to its particular mix of research emphases and nonhuman primate colonies. 

Scientists at the center have developed models to study key questions about aging, metabolic diseases like diabetes, reproductive enhancement, and many others. In each of the three research divisions, there are world-class research programs that relate to high-priority medical needs that are expected to increase in importance and funding emphasis over the coming decades. These include research in aging, AIDS, depression, infectious diseases, substance abuse, obesity, reproductive health, and stem cells.
