The EUPRIM-Net Project

Joint Research Activities

The Joint Research Activities of EUPRIM-Net shall improve the methods used for pathogen surveillance in primate breeding colonies and associated management and hence the quality of the animals used in experiments will be improved. Genetic characterisation of the animals will lead to the provision of animals most appropriate for specific biomedical research studies: this will in turn enhance the statistical power of the research data and as a consequence improve the results of the studies and reduce the number of animals required. The provision of such specific pathogen-free animals with characterised immunogenetics will result in the European primate centres addressing the reduction of animals in scientific experiments (the 3 R’s).
