Sen. Jim Inhofe’s office announced on Monday a $1.9 million congressional funding request for a biomedical data sciences center at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. 

The new Center for Biomedical Data Sciences will open later this year and will afford OMRF new computing and data analysis abilities and support for scientists studying conditions like cancer, lupus, stroke and heart disease.

“OMRF has been involved in groundbreaking research for the past 75 years,” Inhofe said in a statement. “Since its founding, OMRF’s scientists’ discoveries have yielded hundreds of medical advancements used to improve — and even save — the lives of Oklahomans and individuals worldwide. We want to keep this research going — and to expand it. I am happy to support dedicated funding to help OMRF establish Oklahoma’s first Center for Biomedical Data Sciences.”
