Program No.17-007 (Collaborative Research)
Seminar and exchange of research information at the German Primate
Period: September 20th - 28th, 2005
The German Primate Center
On a mutual information exchange between The Primate Research Institute
of Kyoto University and The German Primate Center (GPC), I visited GPC in
Gottingen from September 22, 2005 to September 27, 2005. I provided
information about the organization and research in The Primate Research
Institute of Kyoto University. I also explained about the organization of
HOPE. From GPC, I received information about the research performed in the
sections of Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, Cognitive Ethology,
Primate Genetics, Reproductive Biology, Stem Cell Research, Primate
Husbandry, Cognitive Neurosciences, Neurobiology, Clinical Neurobiology,
Infection Pathology, and Virology and Immunology. Statistical data on (a)
the numbers and species maintained in GPC, (b) numbers of animals for the
breeding and of new born animals each year, (c) numbers of animals which
are supplied to other institution each year were also received.
On September 26, I delivered a seminar entitled "molecular
mechanisms of the development and aging in the primate brain - from the
viewpoint of neurotrophins-", to an audience of about 50.
