Archive of Rhesus Macaque Milk Samples

Since being established in 2005, we have collected and archived milk samples from 250 rhesus macaques, totaling over 8000 ml of milk. To maximize the knowledge that can be gained from this research program, these samples are available for colleagues to assay milk for bioactive components that contribute to infant growth, development, and health but are beyond our current “in house” capabilities.

Access to the samples, contingent on formalized collaborative agreements, also includes access to longitudinal maternal and infant morphometrics, proximate milk composition values, and behavioral composite z-scores, for analyses in conjunction with the archived milk samples.
