Researchers with the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation teamed up with OU Medicine to come up with a way to create a test right here in our state.
Rapid tests allow for quicker results but aren’t always as accurate as the “gold standard” PCR option.
The idea was created when testing materials were in short supply at the beginning of the pandemic.
When Covid-19 hit Oklahoma, the state had only minimal testing options available. OMRF and OU joined forces to change that.
OMRF has received a pair of grants totaling almost $600,000 from the Lupus Research Alliance.
A recent OMRF study is potentially paving the way for better preventive treatment options for African American patients.
