Description

The Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center is a division of the Robert W.
Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University. Yerkes receives its
primary support from Animal Resources Branch, National Center for Research
Resources, NIH, and from research grants and contracts from federal and
private sources. The Center is committed to basic and applied biomedical
and behavioral research with primates. Research programs involving
several great ape and monkey species are directed primarily toward four
major missions: (1) Neurological research including neuroanatomy,
neurophysiology, neuroendocrinology, and neurobehavior. Within this
cluster of disciplines there is a strong focus on basic visual mechanisms
and disorders of vision; (2) Behavioral research including social behavior
and its biological roots with special reference to hormones and
environmental influences and their interactions, learning, memory,
cognition, communication and linguistic behavior, psychopharmacology and
psychobiology; (3) Experimental pathobiology and immunobiology including:
neoplastic diseases and primate models for human infectious and
degenerative diseases; (4) Reproductive biology including in vitro
fertilization, endocrinology and behavior, and studies of fertility and
sterility. The Center consists of a Main Station containing animal
quarters and research laboratories located on the Emory University campus,
a 115 acre Field Research Station for breeding and studies of semi-free-
ranging social behavior in primates, located 30 miles north of Atlanta,
and a Language Research center in southeast Atlanta. Zoo Atlanta holds
many specimens of Yerkes gorillas and orangutans available for
conservation, breeding, endocrine, reproductive biology and behavioral
research.
