Established in 1964, the Tulane National Primate Research Center (TNPRC) is one of only seven National Primate Research Centers, and is recognized as one of the country’s premier infectious disease research facilities.
It functions as a regional and national resource for research using nonhuman primates; and is the site of one of 13 Regional Biosafety Laboratories (BSL3) in the NIH/NIAID National Biodefense Program. It offers strengths in NHP research and model systems for a multitude of diseases.TNPRC
Tulane engages in a wide range of research activities relating to adult and pediatric infectious diseases, from clinical to epidemiological. Areas of strength include HIV/AIDS, ebola, mycoses, mycobacteria and tropical medicine.Embers Lab
Tulane is focused on the prevention and treatment of adverse events and conditions relating to the continuum of cardiovascular health, i.e.: Hypertension and Diabetes.
We are also the home of the Bogalusa Heart Study, and the related wealth of clinical information and expertise derived from years of studying these conditions.Woods Lab
Our cancer/oncology program spans boundaries — both within Tulane and at the joint enterprise of the Louisiana Cancer Research Center.
Areas of research include molecular genetics, tumor biology and signaling, population sciences and prevention, clinical and translational research, cancer health disparities, circadian cancer, leukemia/lymphoma, and prostate, breast and gynecologic cancers.Belancio Lab
Neuroscience at Tulane is truly interdisciplinary, and focuses on research areas including neuroendocrinology, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, and neurosurgery — as well as cognitive, behavioral and developmental neuroscience.
Tulane is the home of an innovative teaching laboratory, molecular neuroscience core facilities, and a neurobiotechnology confocal microscopy core.Center for
Tulane is a proven innovator in regenerative medicine. Research in this field includes cell therapy, gene therapy, tissue engineering and non-human primate research.
New therapies for common diseases are developed including: osteoarthritis, stroke, diabetes, oncology and autoimmune diseases, and the TNPRC Division of Regenerative Medicine conducts research that utilizes vector-based gene therapies and cell-based interventions for genetic and acquired diseases.Bunnell Lab
Tulane has broad strengths in peptides research, from our Peptides Research Laboratories run by Dr. David Coy to the lab of Dr. Jim Zadina.
The lab of James Zadina studies the societal epidemic of opioids and their role and mechanisms of action in alleviating pain and inducing side effects, currently research lines being based on modifications of naturally occurring peptide opioids.Coy Lab
