Brumback Aotus Conservation Grant

In 2010, the ASP Conservation Committee awarded three Brumback Aotus Conservation Grants to support conservation-related research on owl monkeys (Aotus). This opportunity was made possible by the generosity of Dr. Roger Brumback, currently Professor of Pathology and Psychiatry at Creighton University School of Medicine, whose research in the 1970s contributed greatly to our knowledge of Aotus cytogenetics. In fact, in recognition of his important work, a species of Aotus was named after him: Aotus brumbacki. [For more information, see the ASP June 2000 Bulletin.]
