Another Research Center for Sjogren's Syndrome!

This very, very good news from Sjogren's Quarterly:
The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRN) has received a five-year $7.8 million grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) at the National Institutes of Health. The funds will be used to create the Oklahoma Sjogren's Syndrome Center of Research Translation which will focus on developing new ways to diagnose and treat Sjogren's. The center will be headed by Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation Research Grantee Kathy Moser, PhD....................."IMRF is already a world leader in Sjogren's research, and this grant allows us to continue important work on finding the causes and potential treatments for the disease," says Dr. Moser, who serves as primary investigator on the grant and director of the OMRF Sjogren's Research Center. "We'll be using new technology to make inroads on questions that have been asked about this disease for decades."
