Program areas at OMRF

Arthritis & Clinical Immunology/Clinical Operations - 2018 saw the launch of a pair of watershed clinical trials at OMRF: one to prevent lupus, the other to stop rheumatoid arthritis before it takes hold in patients. With these new studies, OMRF is now home to almost 40 clinical trials for new treatments for autoimmune diseases. The initiatives not only deliver novel experimental treatments to people suffering from lupus, RA and multiple sclerosis, but they also help scientists develop new insights into stopping these life-altering illnesses. By blending lab research with patient studies, program leader Dr. Judith James has created a model for how physicians and scientists can work together to create better outcomes for people suffering from diseases in which the body mistakenly turns the immune system against itself.

Aging and Metabolism Research Program - With the goal of lengthening people's healthspans - the period of time they enjoy active, productive lives - scientists in this program secured a grant to study whether a compound that's naturally produced in broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts can protect eyes from macular degeneration. They also found that high-carbohydrate diets increased the risk of osteoarthritis in mice, even when the animals didn't differ in weight. The year ended with the successful recruitment of a trio of new researchers, each focused on fighting aging in a different vital bodily network: the brain and nervous system; the cardiovascular system; and our muscles.

Cardiovascular Biology Research Program - Highlights from the past year spanned a broad range of health problems. One scientist helped solve a puzzling genetic mystery, opening the door to new treatments for a young patient suffering from a rare disorder. Another research team pinpointed the cause of liver bleeding during Tylenol overdose, which results in 56,000 ER visits in the U.S. each year and is the leading cause of liver transplants. In experiments, the researchers also found a way to treat overdoses using an existing prescription drug, a discovery whose therapeutic impact could be lifesaving. Finally, work in OMRF labs blazed a new path for treating deep vein thrombosis, a potentially fatal blood clotting disorder that claims up to 100,000 American lives each year.
