Nonhuman Primate Research Support Core (NHPRSC)


The Nonhuman Primate Research Support Core (NHPRSC) is an internal ACVP core that provides critical research support for studies conducted by ACVP scientists and their collaborators in nonhuman primates. The core is charged with providing ongoing scheduling for all study events, drug preparation, and specimen collection, handling, processing, and transportation support for AIDS vaccine, pathogenesis, and treatment studies. The NHPRSC receives, accessions, processes, distributes, and stores specimens of nonhuman primate blood, tissues, and other bodily fluids, and maintains detailed databases on these specimens, including current inventories of cryo-preserved samples, and distributes these specimens to internal and external labs as directed by study investigators. The NHPRSC also prepares co-formulated, injectable all antiretroviral drugs and single dose units for oral administration from drugs acquired in bulk.
