Oklahoma's Children's Medical Research Institute Receives Funds for New Chair


Page, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Children's Medical Research Institute has received funding for a fifth $2 million chair for childhood diabetes research at the OU Health Sciences Center.

Sherry and Jerry Cash provided $500,000 for the CMRI Cash Family Chair in childhood diabetes. CMRI will match the Cash family donation with another $500,000. The $1 million will be eligible for matching funds from the State Regents Endowment Program to create a $2 million endowment for pediatric diabetes research, said Sue Homsey, CMRI board chairman.

"This generous gift by the Cash family will allow the full realization of our dream to build a world-class diabetes research and treatment program right here in Oklahoma," said Kenneth Copeland, chief of the pediatric diabetes program at the OU College of Medicine. "This gift will allow us to provide unparalleled care to children with diabetes here in our own state, while conducting research that will help diabetic children and patients everywhere."

The endowed chairs were developed in partnership with the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes, Inasmuch Foundation, the Hobbs-Recknagel family and the Cash family.

Researchers are being sought for two of the five chairs. Copeland, Steven D. Chernausek, director of the CMRI Diabetes Metabolic Research Center and CMRI Edith Kinney Gaylord Chair, and Andrew Gardner, CMRI Hobbs-Recknagel Chair, are the three chair holders currently conducting research on childhood diabetes at the center.
