Primates at CCMR


The Center for Comparative Medicine (CCMR) has the capacity to house 1,500 nonhuman primates. Currently, approximately 1000 nonhuman primates and other animal species are housed on the 200 acre campus. The majority of animals on active research protocols are housed socially to European Standards, where they are able to interact with each other in a natural-like environment.

The largest group of nonhuman primates currently residing at the CCMR consists of the African green monkeys.
