Nairobi National Museum, Louis Leakey Auditorium

 

The Institute of Primate Research (IPR) is the largest in Africa in terms of capacity to hold and maintain

non-human primates used for research. The discovery of basic human reproductive health solutions from cervical cancer to endometriosis can arise from IPR’s research on baboons.

Other highlights of the presentation include the specific contributions of IPR, the importance of biomedical research in Kenya and IPR’s commitment to animal welfare in research.
