Research resource & equipment
The EHUB creates and provides high-quality resources to support experimental research on non-human primates in Japan, and as the core institution of the NBRP "Japanese Monkeys," it breeds 1,200 monkeys of seven species, including Japanese macaques that are bred in consideration of their natural condition. In addition, the EHUB houses more than 15,000 skeletal specimens, 6,000 molecular biological samples, and other materials used in various research fields. The EHUB is equipped with large-scale research equipment such as CT, MRI, and next-generation sequencers, forming an international and interdisciplinary center of education and research for the study of behavioral evolution in primates. From April 2023, some of the study materials and research equipment will be made available to outside researchers. We ask for a user fee to cover the cost of their management and operation. If you wish to use them, please contact a faculty member at the EHUB to proceed with the procedures.
