  • May 10, 2012
  • Participation Options:
  • Onsite - BMS Conference Center, Pennington, NJ
  • Online – Video Conferencing

A Scientific Conference for Investigators working with Non-Human Primate Models

Organized by the New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research

Sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb

This conference will build on ground-breaking work to sequence the Macaca fascicularis genome and focus on practical applications of primate genetics in drug discovery and development. World-renown NHP researchers will present the latest findings and share strategies for advancing the science through improved experimental design. Afternoon workshops will allow researchers to explore plenary topics in greater depth with the speakers and colleagues from academia and industry.
