The National Institutes of Health has renewed five research grants for the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.
The awards, which total $14.2 million over the next three to five years, will allow OMRF scientists to continue their research on cancer, lupus and heart disease while continuing to train junior-level scientists.
“The competition for these federal dollars is fierce,” OMRF Vice President of Research Paul Kincade said in a news release. “This is tremendous news for us, because these awards are rare and are a real testament to the high caliber of research underway at OMRF.”
