Mission

The Caribbean Primate Research Center’s mission is to increase our scientific understanding of primate biology and behavior and undertake humane research that improves human health and welfare. In this regard, CPRC is committed to: a) provide the national and international scientific community with Indian-origin rhesus macaques with known background and of the same genetic pool, b) provide a scientific scenario for studies of numerous diseases that afflict human health, and c) conduct multidisciplinary collaborative studies on the life cycle of rhesus macaques as a biological model for humans.
