National Primate Research Centers
The Center has been a part of the University of Washington research community since 1961 and is one of seven National Primate Research Centers established by Congress in 1959 in order to provide specialized resources for nonhuman primate research studies that are applicable to human health.
The Instrumentation Services Core has been providing high-precision mechanical and electronic instrumentation since the inception of the WaNPRC. Moreover, because of its rich technical expertise, the Instrumentation Services Core also supplies invaluable support to the Center at large in such diverse areas as animal capture restraint and monitoring and facility evaluation and design.
