Welcome to Oxford University’s primate research facility.

This facility has been specially designed to accommodate behavioural neuroscience research involving Rhesus Macaque (Macaca mulatta) monkeys.

Macaques are socially and cognitively complex animals, characteristics that make them ideal subjects for our behavioural neuroscience studies. Because of these characteristics it is really important that we provide high standards of care.

Our species-specific environmental enrichment program and reward-based training strategies are key to ensuring the animals are appropriately acclimatised to the staff, the laboratory environment and the research procedures.

During this virtual tour you will have an opportunity to meet the staff and animals, to see the facilities and to learn about some of the studies that we carry out.
