OMRF scientist Patrick Gaffney has received a five-year, $3.1 million grant to investigate the underlying mechanisms that lead to lupus onset.
The grant will help OMRF recruit a pair of new scientists to its aging research program.
Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the U.S., but it isn’t just one disease.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the U.S., killing one in every four males.
Earlier this month, trustee C.B. Graft visited OMRF to present a check for $105,000.
The annual event is scheduled for May 7.
