Three students from United States service academies have completed biomedical research summer internships at OMRF.
OMRF scientist Christopher Lessard received a five-year grant to identify genes associated with Sjögren’s syndrome.
The Saxon program is designed to provide military academy students with an opportunity to work side-by-side with OMRF’s senior scientists.
The new Genes and Human Disease Research Program will broaden OMRF’s investigation into genetic mechanisms in various diseases.
New findings provide a better understanding of how cells replicate, and it could help outline how and why this process goes wrong in cancer.
At its annual honors and awards ceremony on Thursday, OMRF presented Christy Everest with its Board of Directors Distinguished Service Award.
