Message from the Director
Welcome to the website of the Oklahoma Center for Respiratory and Infectious Diseases (OCRID) of the Oklahoma State University (OSU). Established in 2013 through an $11.3 million CoBRE grant from the National Institutes of Health, OCRID is quickly becoming a focal point for expanding respiratory infectious disease research in Oklahoma. We are a multi-institutional center with administrative offices housed in the Center for Veterinary Health Sciences at OSU. Our investigators come from major research institutions across the state of Oklahoma, including 5 colleges at the OSU Stillwater campus, 1 college at the OSU Tulsa campus, 2 colleges at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences in Oklahoma City, 1 college at the University of Oklahoma Norman campus, and an independent research institute, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation in Oklahoma City.
