Primate Medicine

Primate Medicine provides high quality centralized clinical care, research support, training, and veterinary oversight to ensure compliance with optimized standards of research conduct and animal care. The Primate Medicine team is responsible for the clinical care of over 4,000 nonhuman primates and encompasses all health needs across the lifespan, from neonatal to geriatric stages, and from preventive medicine to intensive care. Primate Medicine Services also provides research project support to investigators.

Primate Medicine veterinarians also integrate with other CNPRC services, Core Scientists, the UC Davis Animal Care Program, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital to ensure optimal management practices, develop guidelines, algorithms, and standard operating procedures (SOPs), as well as provide input on future plans.
