COVID-19 RESEARCH BY THE NATIONAL PRIMATE RESEARCH CENTERS

Nonhuman primates, macaques in particular, have proven to be invaluable models for understanding transmission, pathogenesis, genetics and other characteristics of RNA viruses such as HIV, Ebola, Zika and now COVID-19. Vaccines and other medical treatments informed by nonhuman primate research have prevented countless deaths from viruses and other global infectious diseases. Learn more here and also here.
