Advancing OKC

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at 12:00:00 am
OMRF researcher

Did you know that ground-breaking discoveries are made right here in downtown OKC every day?
At the crossroads of Interstate 35 and Highway 77 and just blocks away from both the State Capitol and downtown’s Central Business District, Oklahoma City’s budding innovation district is helping diversify the city’s growing economy and bringing international notoriety.

OKC researchers are putting the city on the map as a front-runner for bioscience and biotechnology discovery not only in the U.S., but globally as well. In fact, students travel from across the globe for an opportunity to take part in the prestigious Visiting Research Graduate Traineeship Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF).

Why is this important, you may ask? These world-class researchers have partnerships with some of the most well renowned universities in the country and could conduct their research anywhere, yet they choose to be in OKC. That is pretty cool, if you ask us.

Curious about what is happening in your city? We bet you didn’t know that all of this was happening right here in your back yard.
