Aging in Non-Human Primates and Hormonal Changes - try going to and typing in "aging in non-human primates, hormonal" you will get all kinds of information related to the similarities (and differences) between humans and non-human primates.


The NIA maintains approximately 150 nonhuman primates (M. mulatta) at four regional primate centers for conducting research on aging. These animals range in age from 18 to 35 years. These rhesus monkeys are currently only approved for non-invasive research. The NIA Office of Biological Resources and Resource Development has put together a compendium of Non-Human primate resource availability for aging research. Contact the OBRRD (  ) for a copy.  


They have ... biology and structure with humans, non-human primates are extremely valuable models ...   

By using the animal model that most closely mirrors human physiology, anatomy, and behavior, we can explore questions and make progress on biomedical issues that would be impossible without a model which is similar to humans.
Reproductive Health
Non-human primates such as monkeys are invaluable for studying human primate development and reproduction because their reproductive physiology is very similar when compared to humans. Research using monkeys at the CRPRC has led to developing new methods for contraception, improvement of techniques for gamete cryopreservation, understanding the causes of infertility and birth defects, and development of prenatal treatments for debilitating inherited or acquired disorders. Nutrition-related research has also led to improvements in infant formulas.:

In addition to NCRR Primate Center staff, Primate-Science is open to staff at other research-based primate centers and laboratories worldwide. People in academic institutions or zoological gardens who are doing primate research are also invited to apply.

The purpose of this forum is the factual, science-based exchange of ideas and information about nonhuman primates and is intended to serve the international primatological research community.

As they relate to primatology, the following topics are covered by this forum:
Biomedical Research
Primate Conservation
