Member Benefit: Tour of the Oregon National Primate Research Center
Saturday, May 25, 10am-12:30 pm
Join us for an exclusive opportunity to tour the Oregon National Primate Research Center. As one of the seven National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs) supported by the National Institutes of Health, their mandate is help people across generations live longer, healthier lives through scientific breakthroughs. To accomplish this goal, the NPRCs engaged in biomedical research using nonhuman primate (NHP) models, and provide research experts and resources to investigators throughout the United States so that they can discover causes, preventions, treatments, and cures for important diseases and disorders.
