International Seminar

Primate Behavior, Biomedicine and Neurosciences Research for Promoting Better Health

Introduction

Primate remain essential as an animal model in various studies related to the human phenomenon, such as study on infectious and degenerative diseases, vaccine development, conservation, psychology and behavior as well as interaction between animal and the environment as their habitat. Closer proximity of primates’ nervous system; relatively longer-lifespan, homology and behavior of primate which resemble human- make primate as an ideal model for comparative psychology and evolutionary anthropology as well as neurodegenerative science that cannot be clearly described other animal model. The physiological characteristic and genetic similarities between primate animal and human lead to the use of primate as important animal model for these various studies.

Several studies that have been done conducted in the our Primate Research Centre of Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) – in collaboration with national and international institutions partners – revealed the enormous potentials of Indonesian primates as animal model for various strategic human diseases; both infectious, such as malaria, dengue, hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, papillomavirus as well as non-infectious, such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer, cancer; and its potential for model of stem cells, orthopedic, dentistry, and skin studies.

The high potential of primate to support human health and ecosystem balance urge an effort to conserve their environment/habitat. The main threat for the existence of animal in the wild is related with human activities, such as hunting and habitat destruction due to forest fires, deforestation and forest conversion to plantation or human settlement. These conditions lead to the greater possibility for interaction or contact between primate and human, and therefore easier for transmission of pathogenic agent from animal to human or vice versa. Therefore, conservation program alone will not be adequate to save natural resources, taking into account the increasing interaction between animal and human. As the important part of the integrated human health and ecosystem preservation, the primate conservation need to be considered to create balance and health harmony between human, animal and environment balance (ecohealth).

Participants

This seminar is expected to be attended by both national and international participants of government institutes, private sector, and universities, with emphasis to health, medical, veterinary, environment and wildlife conservation. The international participants will be originated from United States, Denmark, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Brunei Darussalam. Selected papers which are presented in this event will be published on national accredited journal such as Jurnal Veteriner, Hayati, ActaVet, and peer-reviewed international’s including American Journal of Primatology, Journal of Medical Primatology, Folia Primatologia and Primates.
