Resource:New Iberia Research Center

Name: Resource:New Iberia Research Center
Description:

NIRC maintains and provides available research facilities accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International; a ready source of chimpanzees of mixed ages and sex for use in biomedical and behavioral sciences, and also provides professional staff necessary to support investigators with their research needs.

Current Research:
Vaccine development and testing; pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, preclinical safety, and efficacy studies.

Services Provided:
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette-New Iberia Research Center (UL Lafayette-NIRC) is an AAALAC-International-accredited nonhuman primate research facility dedicated to the support of basic and applied biomedical and behavioral research. All proposed programs must be approved by the presenting institution and the UL Lafayette-NIRC animal care and use committees. State-of-the-art biomedical support facilities are available that include access to ultrasound, radiography with automatic processor and computer imagery for diagnostic enhancement, and endoscopy and laparoscopy with video monitors, camera and color photo imagery.

Diagnostic Laboratory:
A 12,000-square-foot laboratory is available for investigators' research support requirements. Capabilities within the laboratory include but are not limited to hematology, chemistry, microbiology, urinalysis, parasitology, and histology. Among the investigator support procedures are Ficoll gradient isolation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells, platelet aggregation profiles, nonhuman primate lymphocyte proliferation assay, and flow cytometry (lymphocyte enumeration). Emergency generator power is accessible in each laboratory unit and for all major instrumentation and critical freezers.

Animals:

The center cares for approximately 360 chimpanzees and 5,500 New and Old World species of nonhuman primates. In addition to chimpanzees, the following species of nonhuman primates are being bred at the center: Vervet monkey (Chlorocebus aethiops), cynomolgus macaque (Macaca fascicularis), pigtailed macaque (M. nemestrina), rhesus macaque (M. mulatta).
