Definition THIS RESOURCE IS NO LONGER IN SERVICE, doc THIS RESOURCE IS NO LONGER IN SERVICE, documented on July 17, 2013.<br /> It houses chimpanzees that have been used in biomedical research, but no active, invasive research is conducted on the site. The APF provides for the long-term care and husbandry of chimpanzees that have been used in biomedical research. Charles River Laboratories Inc. operates the facility under contract with the National Institutes of Health. To be used in continuing virological research, the animals must be transferred to active chimpanzee research settings.<br /> All chimpanzees at the APF have been exposed to various microorganisms, such as hepatitis C virus and HIV. For this reason, they may be candidates for studies related to these diseases. The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) may remove infected animals from the APF to other accredited chimpanzee facilities for research purposes. Investigators interested in the chimpanzees at the APF should contact Dr. Harold Watson in NCRR's Division of Comparative Medicine to discuss research requirements.
