OMRF is recruiting those who have or who think they may have Sjögren’s syndrome to participate in new research studies and a clinical trial.
OMRF has received a pair of grants totaling almost $600,000 from the Lupus Research Alliance.
OMRF VP of Clinical Affairs Judith James received a pair of distinguished honors at the American College of Rheumatology’s annual meeting.
Scientists have long known lupus has a strong genetic component, but there also must be environmental triggers to activate the disease.
The federal grants will support the work of two OMRF scientists who are investigating different aspects of autoimmune disease: Judith James, M.D., Ph.D., and Joan Merrill, M.D.
While we celebrate mothers this weekend, scientists at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation are working constantly to protect them.
