The Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center (BRC) directly supports the research mission of the Health Sciences Center. The BRC is comprised of 233,000 gross square feet of space dedicated to biomedical, cancer and genetics research. The facility includes 48 research laboratories, core laboratories, BSL3 containment lab, vivarium and laboratory support spaces.
The research activity at the OUHSC continues to strengthen and grow, reflected by the amount of external funding awarded to OUHSC faculty during FY 2017. Reaching $143.3 million in 2017 alone, Figure 1 below reflects our remarkable achievements.Importantly, FY 2017 funding reached an all-time record high and we anticipate the trajectory of growth will continue, given the talent, dedication, and hard work of our faculty, staff, and students. Notably, growth in NIH, clinical trials, and non-profit awards drove the rise in funding ($6 million) over the past year. Even with today’s difficult funding environment where many institutions’ funding has been stagnant or in decline, OUHSC researchers continue to excel and expand our research programs.
Research facilities growth and development have been due to the tremendous growth in NIH support, major contributions from the Presbyterian Health Foundation (PHF) and the University Hospitals Trust, and recognition as an institution of emerging excellence. The establishment of two centers, including the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) and the PHS Native American Center of Excellence (COE), has enhanced the University's research position.
