Disease causes misery and large numbers of deaths in human populations worldwide. For many common deadly diseases there is still a desperate need for effective medicines. BPRC is a scientific research institute that exists to perform vital research that contributes to the identification and development of these new medicines.
BPRC is committed to using non-human primates for this critical research only where there are no suitable alternatives. Research is also required to identify and develop alternatives to the use of non-human primates. BPRC has an active and expanding programme to develop alternatives following the principles of reduction, refinement and replacement
Corporal social responsibility (CSR) has a high priority at BPRC. The BPRC is e.g. certified for responsible environmental policy (ISO 14001/2004) and is international recognized for animal welfare policy (AAALAC).
