Our research efforts change with the changing problems in human health. And for every question answered, more questions are asked. With over 300 scientific staff members, including some of the world’s foremost immunologists and cardiovascular biologists, OMRF has become one of the nation’s leading independent medical research institutes. Along the way, our scientists have done more than explore the mysteries of human disease—they have helped develop medications that fight deadly illnesses. They have saved lives.

While our name says Oklahoma, when it comes to scientific partnerships, OMRF’s work touches nearly every corner of the globe. In 2006, our researchers published papers or joined on grants with scientists in 24 U.S. states, 20 countries and on 6 continents. And research topics at OMRF range as far and wide as collaborators, from studies of rare children’s diseases to Alzheimer’s.
