Abstract

The National Institutes of Health’s Primate Research Centers Program was started in 1960. It was begun on the premise that research into human disease requires a close animal relative in which diseases could be duplicated and studied, their causes and effects documented, and effective methods of prevention and treatment developed. Within a decade, seven unique facilities had been established that were providing significant research data.
