Visiting Scientists Program

The visiting scientist program provides collaborative research opportunities for extramural scientists.  The Wake Forest University Primate Center (WFUPC) is an institutional resource of Wake Forest School of Medicine and includes researchers from a wide range of academic departments.   Our unique research environment affords visiting investigators the opportunity to work with a number of different nonhuman primate species as well as other animal models of human disease.
