BBSRC, MRC and the Wellcome Trust jointly commissioned and funded this review by Professor Sir Patrick Bateson FRS in order to:

  • assess the quality, outputs and impacts of research in this area on advancing knowledge in human and animal health
  • identify the strengths and weaknesses of the funded science in this field
  • inform their future science and funding strategies
  • feed the outcomes of the review into any government strategy on non-human primates use
