BPRC Biomedical Primate Research Centre


RIJSWIJK (The Netherlands)


Organisation background

The Biomedical Primate Research Centre (BPRC) has a long-standing experience in characterising the Major Histocompatibility Complexes (MHC) of chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta). The BPRC is a unique setting since it is the only centre in the world that possesses alloantisera that define MHC Class I and II polymorphisms in non human primates. As a result, the chimpanzee and rhesus macaque colonies have been pedigreed for more than three generations based upon the segregation of MHC specificities.
