Short summary
This article describes the important role of online resources in enabling scientists and others to improve the care and use of non-human primates used in research, through information exchange, staff training and networking. Emphasis is given to key resources from the NC3Rs on macaque and marmoset behaviour, care and welfare; experimental design; chronic implants in neuroscience; and aspects of drug discovery and development. Use of these resources can benefit both animal welfare and science.
