     Rhesus Macaque     
     Rhesus Macaques     

On behalf of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Associate Director of Animal Resources Joyce Cohen has received three years of funding from NIH for NEW HOUSING FOR THE EXPANSION OF THE YERKES RHESUS MACAQUE BREEDING COLONY IN SUPPORT OF HIV-AIDS RESEARCH (C06OD030081).

Yerkes HIV/AIDS research portfolio has grown from $21M to $34.1M over the past six years. This increase in HIV/AIDS grants has resulted in an unsustainable demand for rhesus macaques to support the research. In order to meet the current and projected future research demand, NIH has provided funds to build new animal housing at the Yerkes Field Station (Lawrenceville) to facilitate expansion of the Rhesus Macaque breeding colony.

The new animal housing will integrate traditional large indoor/ outdoor breeding spaces into a building that includes smaller run housing space as well. The new run housing will be comprised of traditional indoor run space with accompanying enlarged outdoor run space with a natural substrate for flooring.

This combination of compound and run space will maximize breeding potential and facilitate targeted genetic breeding in smaller groups in runs to support specific genotype requests for AIDS/HIV research.
