Monkeys are important experimental animals used at the final stage of development of drugs and medical technologies. Tsukuba Primate Research Center owns a large-scale breeding colony of experimental monkeys, mainly cynomolgus monkeys, and it is the only facility in Japan that both supplies laboratory-bred monkeys and performs medical research. In addition to quality control, supply research resource development, and basic technology development, we evaluate state-of-the-art medical technology, the efficacy of new drugs and safety assessments using monkeys.
