The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is part of the National Primate Research Centers program funded by the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Research Infrastructure Programs.

For nearly 60 years, the WNPRC has advanced scientific collaboration and discovery, education and training. We’ve provided compassionate and expert animal care while contributing to improving human health and quality of life from early development through aging.

The WNPRC is also involved in new, virtual outreach programs for schools and the public. We are also proud to host Primate Info Net, an international resource in primatology.
