Welcome to OKC! Puterbaugh laboratory dedicated

More than 30 leading venture capitalists and McAlester’s Puterbaugh Foundation made a major gift to the foundation in honor of OMRF’s

capital firms met to share ideas and forge
relationships. For many participants, this was
their first visit to Oklahoma. Congressman
Tom Cole (R. Okla.) gave the keynote address,
and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin welcomed
the participants at a networking reception.
“It’s discussions like these that will lead to
greater contributions and participation from
Oklahoma in biomedical research nationwide,”
said Cole.

Traumatic brain Fundraising with heart
injury findings
OMRF’s annual “241” events—two events for one great cause—raised $590,000 to support research
OMRF’s Dr. Holly Van Remmen made on heart disease and stroke. A musical performance by Grammy and CMA award-winning Nitty Gritty
an important contribution to the rapidly Dirt Band got partygoers rocking for research at a wine and music festival. Events capped off the next
emerging field of traumatic brain injury day with a golf tournament, where 25 teams took to the links to support cardiovascular research in
(TBI) research. Increasingly, experts OMRF’s laboratories.
have grown concerned that TBI can
contribute to long-term
neurodegeneration. In
the lab, Van Remmen
and her team looked
specifically at whether
TBI affected the
progression of the
neurodegenerative disease
amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis, also known
as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s
disease. Using mice genetically altered to
develop ALS, Van Remmen found that TBI
caused decreased coordination and muscle
function, as well as loss of grip strength.
“This research does not answer the question
of whether suffering a traumatic brain injury
can make you more likely to develop ALS,
but it shows that TBI can worsen the traits
of the disease,” says Van Remmen.

New hope for
lupus patients

In lupus and other autoimmune illnesses,
disease flares—a sudden worsening of
symptoms—can leave a person completely
debilitated with no warning. But a discovery
by OMRF scientists Drs. Judith James and
Melissa Munroe aims to change that. The
pair identified 52 disease mediators, which
are molecules that regulate inflammation and
increase or decrease the chance that a lupus
patient will experience a disease flare. A new
collaboration between OMRF and Progentec
Diagnostics will create tools designed to
improve the treatment of autoimmune
diseases. The initial project will focus on
developing a diagnostic test to identify patients
at an increased risk of disease flares in lupus.

How does OMRF keep going places? It takes 4
the guidance of a group of leaders whose
vision and dedication keep the foundation’s 1 1
programs strong. OMRF’s 84 directors bring 1
a cross-section of skills honed in the business, 1
civic and volunteer sectors that they share with
administrators and scientists to ensure that 1
the foundation operates at the highest possible
level. OMRF directors hail from 20 different 1
Oklahoma counties, as well as Michigan, 1
Texas and Virginia. Our two newest
directors, Mindy Mahaney and Judy Hatfield,
joined the board in 2015.

This group of national business and thought leaders helps spread
the word about OMRF outside of Oklahoma. In 2015, the
Council gathered in Washington, DC, and welcomed a distinguished
group of Washington-area guests that included Congressman Tom
Cole (R. Okla.) Chair, Subcommittee on Labor, Health and
Human Services, Education and Related Agencies. By raising
national awareness of the foundation’s successes, the council helps
connect OMRF to individuals, corporations and foundations that
can provide support to the foundation.
