ANDI Center of Exellence


The Institute of Primate Research has been recognized by the African Network of Drugs and Diagnostics Innovation (ANDI) as a Centre of Excellence in Preclinical Research and for its work in health innovation.

This new status was conferred on IPR at the 4th ANDI Stakeholders and Donors Conference held in Addis Ababa Ethiopia on October 24-27th 2011. ANDI goals are to increase research and development collaboration among African institutions and countries, including through the support of Centers of Excellence in health innovation.

IPR recognition is based on its impressive achievements in preclinical research and development of new candidate drugs, vaccines and diagnostics for infectious and non-infectious diseases. ANDI also recognizes the strong human resource capacity of IPR and the unique role it can play in providing  research resources,  to other African research organizations. This status is also another feather on IPR cap as it is also a World Health organization Collaborating Centre in Human Reproduction, and has also recently been admitted as an Associate Partner of the EU Primate Network (EUPRIM-Net).
