The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation has named Lindsay Thomas as the foundation’s Director of Public Affairs.
Thomas comes to OMRF from Science Museum Oklahoma, where she served as communications director. Prior to that, she was a staff writer and communications and marketing coordinator at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Thomas received her bachelor’s degree in English from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, Calif.
“I’m thrilled to join the team at OMRF and be part of the life-changing work that the foundation is doing, especially amid a global pandemic when medical research is top of mind for so many Oklahomans.” Thomas said. “OMRF has a more than 70-year legacy of difference-making work — I could not imagine a better place to continue my career in science communications.”
Thomas will employ her skills as a writer, editor, marketer and social media producer to lead the award-winning public affairs team at OMRF. An independent, nonprofit biomedical research institute, OMRF focuses its research on such critical disease areas as cancer, lupus, Alzheimer’s, heart disease and Covid-19.
