The NIH has selected OMRF to lead a $58.5 million public-private partnership aimed at developing more effective treatments for autoimmune diseases.
The NIH has awarded OMRF $480,000 to investigate the long-term effects of viral infections on autoimmunity.
Three OMRF scientists were recognized for excellence at this year’s American College of Rheumatology meeting.
OMRF scientist Christopher Lessard received a five-year grant to identify genes associated with Sjögren’s syndrome.
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.
The findings will allow for more targeted treatment approaches.
