About the Workshop

The Current View over Primate Diseases and Pathology

Assistant Professor, Research Center for Animal Life Science

The biological, genetic and microbiological circumstance surrounding non-human primates (NHPs) for research use have changed for the past decade, from the day SPDP launched. Today, we can get much amount and variety kinds of information about them, although we had quite hard to publish the Color Atlas of Primate Diseases on the way SPDP passed. However, the varied goals each related commercial company or research institute have might make it difficult to summarize such information for our understanding. This is the reason I propose the theme on this conference, SPDP Workshop 2015. We hope to hear about time-dependent changes of real voice from monkey husbandry and research sites, or future view of the relationship between NHPs and us on the workshop. It may show us the direction we should go. The concrete vision of the second publication of SPDP must rise up to us.
