OMRF launches funding campaign

The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation has launched a campaign to raise $5 million to expand the foundation's autoimmune disease research. The Eureka Moments campaign funds will allow the OMRF to recruit two new multiple sclerosis-focused scientists — a researcher and a physician — and a new clinical researcher for other autoimmune diseases. The project will also expand lab space and fund more patient care at OMRF. Already, state and national groups have provided more than $1 million. Toward the $5 million goal, the Kerr Foundation has awarded OMRF a $100,000 challenge grant, which requires the foundation to raise a matching $50,000 by September 2013 and another $50,000 by September 2014. Lead donations to the campaign include: $500,000 from the Choctaw Nation, $200,000 from the Hearst Foundation, and $100,000 from the Dillingham Family in honor of Lori Dillingham Evans. For information, email or call 271-7400.
