National Primate Research Centers

The WaNPRC operates in core facilities supported by the NIH Office of the Director. Specifically, the WaNPRC and other National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs) reside within the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI) in the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP).

The Center is one of eight National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs) in the nation. The mission of the NPRCs is to use scientific discovery and nonhuman primate models to accelerate progress in understanding human diseases, leading to better health. The NPRCs collaborate as a transformative and innovative network to support the best science and act as a resource to the biomedical research community as efficiently as possible. There is an exceptional return on investment in the NPRC program; ten dollars is leveraged for every one dollar of research support for the NPRCs. It is important to sustain funding for the NPRC program and the NIH as a whole to continue to grow and develop an innovative plan for the future of NIH.

See below for a list of all eight NPRCs:
