More than 250 center scientists, through competitive grants, conduct research in primate biology with relevance to human and animal health. The mission of the WNPRC is to increase understanding of basic primate biology and to improve human health and quality of life through research. The Center has strong research and teaching links to the UW Schools or Colleges of Medicine, Letters and Science, Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine.
The WNPRC contintues to help discover treatments, preventions and cures for human disease while generating new knowledge of primate biology, from the molecular and whole animal levels to the understanding of primate ecosystems. This information is distributed to the research community and to the public. The WNPRC also facilitates research progress by providing expertise, resources and training to scientists worldwide.
