This subproject is one of many research subprojects utilizing theresources provided by a Center grant funded by NIH/NCRR. The subproject andinvestigator (PI) may have received primary funding from another NIH source,and thus could be represented in other CRISP entries. The institution listed isfor the Center, which is not necessarily the institution for the investigator.The Division of International Programs at the Washington National Primate Research Center (WaNPRC) is a formal research division that oversees the Center's international programs. Dr. Randall Kyes, a Research Associate Professor and Core Staff Scientist, has directed the Center's international programs for 15 years and has served as head of the Division since 1999 (the year it was established). The objectives of the Division of International Programs include the following: 1) to support foreign breeding operations so as to ensure the availability of nonhuman primate resources; 2) to facilitate joint research projects with collaborating institutions; 3) to provide educational and training opportunities in primatology for faculty, students, and staff from collaborating institutions and outreach services for the scientific community and general public; and 4) to assist in efforts to manage and conserve naturally occurring primate populations in habitat countries. The Division currently maintains two long-standing, international programs in Indonesia (established in 1991 with the Primate Research Center at Bogor Agricultural University) and Russia (established in 1992 with the National Institution: Research Institute of Medical Primatology-Russian Academy of Medical Sciences). A third program was established in Nepal in July 2001 in collaboration with the Nepal Biodiversity Research Society. Recent program additions include: the China Program (established October 2002 with Anhui University), the Bangladesh Program (established October 2002 with Jahangirnagar University), the Thailand Program (established January 2003 with Chiang Mai University), the Democratic Republic of Congo Program (established in July 2003 with the Tayna Center for Conservation Biology), and the Mexico Program (established Nov 2004 with the Institute of Ecology, A.C.). Ongoing collaborative research continued in several other countries as well as assistance with establishing a Primate Center in Mumbai, India. The Division's expanding research cores include Conservation Biology (primate population assessment, genetic characterization, etc.) and Emerging Infectious Disease (primate/human pathogen transmission).
