The OU Health Sciences Center has received a $20 million grant to fund the work of young researchers interested in Oklahoma communities' health problems.
Dr. Judith James, associate vice provost for clinical and translational science at OU Health Sciences Center, said the grant gives young researchers a way to start their careers in Oklahoma, which will encourage them to keep working in the state. It also gives partners like tribes and rural communities access to researchers who are interested in working together on the most pressing problems in their areas, she said.
“It will allow our best and brightest investigators to stay here,” she said.
