The YNPRC is a major biomedical research institution that is rapidly expanding with its main facilities at Emory University and 117-acre Field Station in Lawrenceville. For more than eight decades, the Yerkes Research Center has been dedicated to conducting essential basic science and translational research to advance scientific understanding and to improve human health and well-being. Today, the Yerkes Research Center is one of only seven NPRCs. Our vision is people across generations and the world living longer, healthier lives. In partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and others, the NPRCs conduct and enable studies that make breakthrough discoveries of causes, preventions, treatments and cures possible. The center, which has more than 3,000 nonhuman primates (rhesus macaques, sooty mangabeys, squirrel monkeys, cynomolgus monkeys and chimpanzees) and approximately 7,500 rodents (mice, voles and rats), is a part of the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) of Emory University.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Yerkes National Primate Center, Division of Animal Resources Veterinary Fellowship is designed to allow veterinarians, having completed a laboratory animal residency training program or with equivalent laboratory animal experience, the opportunity to experience the multifaceted field of Laboratory Animal Medicine as specifically relating to nonhuman primates.  In addition, the fellow can expect to learn the particular needs, regulations and guidelines associated with the use of non-human primates in a diverse array of disciplines including immunology, infectious diseases, neuroscience, transplant medicine, imaging, psychobiology and other areas of research.  Laboratory Animal Medicine is a board-certified discipline that combines clinical medicine, preventative medicine, pathology, recognition/development of animal models, regulatory oversight, and collaborative/independent biomedical research.

Twelve veterinarians supervise the experience, and the fellow will work closely with veterinary residents and veterinary technicians to gain a working knowledge and appreciation of the specialty of nonhuman primate medicine. The fellow will spend a minimum of six months either at the Main Research Center on the Emory University campus or at the Yerkes Field Station located approximately 30 miles from the main campus.

Each day routine will vary but will include clinical rounds and observations of the animals, managing clinical problems and follow-up of those cases under the supervision of the clinicians. Participation in different types of surgeries and different imaging sessions (MRI, PET), participation in anesthesia monitoring and post-operative care as well as different experimental procedures requested by investigators such as bleeding, bronchoscopy, rectal and lymph nodes biopsies, CSF taps, i.v. infusions, etc., will also be part of the daily training.  You will also have the opportunity to get involved in necropsy and histopathology of interesting select clinical cases.  Finally, you will participate in a range of IACUC activities such as the review of research protocol and attendance to the IACUC meetings to better understand the process involved in reviewing animal research proposals.
