Our Mission is to improve the health of our global community through innovative biomedical research with nonhuman primates.


About SNPRC

The Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) provides broad services in primate research. We contribute to a national network of National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs) with specialized technologies, capabilities and primate resources, many of which are unique to the SNPRC. We also serve investigators around the globe with research and technical procedures for collaborative projects.

SPNRC is part of the Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) is a not-for-profit, independent research institute with a strong history of pioneering, biomedical breakthroughs that have contributed to the world of science and human health for nearly 80 years. The Texas Biomed mission is to pioneer and share scientific breakthroughs that protect you, your families and our global community from the threat of infectious diseases

Philosophy

The SNPRC aims to be a valuable, trusted and knowledgeable resource for the scientific research community. Our work produces measurable and meaningful advances in multiple fields of research that benefit humans. We have a reputation for excellence and maintain strict regulatory standards under all laws that govern nonhuman primates used in research. We look forward to helping support your research needs.

Committed to discovering causes, prevention, treatments, and cures.

Our researchers conduct every study with a shared commitment to improve human health. Because of this highly-regulated research, medical breakthroughs happen and lives are improved.

History

In 1999, the Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) became the seventh National Primate Research Center (NPRC). Our host institution, Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) has a long, productive history of nonhuman primate research dating back to the early 1950s. With the addition of the SNPRC, the combined institutions have become a unique and important center for excellent biomedical research. The SNPRC has since evolved to become home to more than 2,500 nonhuman primates.
