The Yerkes National Primate Research Center is a leader among the nation’s animal research programs, a resource for researchers worldwide, a source of inspiration for scientific leaders of tomorrow, and a team of dedicated employees committed to compassionate animal care. Your gift is crucial to our ability to fight disease and improve human health. We cannot do so without your generosity.
Private funding is especially important for early stage investigators to accelerate their research and obtain research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). During the last five years, every dollar invested in pilot research programs at Yerkes has resulted in more than $20 in grant funding. Such strategic, short-term investments are directly connected to stronger NIH research applications, larger-scale research projects, and longer-term research funding.
By supporting Yerkes, you can help our center’s researchers discover causes, preventions, treatments, and cures that will help people across generations and the world live longer, healthier lives. Please show your support today by making a donation to the Yerkes National Primate Research Center.
