Our Focus Areas

The focus of Presbyterian Health Foundation has always been to fund research that will save lives.

Although much focus is given to a disease’s latest drug treatment or cure, those developments would not be possible without early-stage scientific breakthroughs. It is at the basic research level where fundamental discoveries are made, enabling future treatments and cures.


By investing in extraordinary projects and people on the Oklahoma Health Center campus, we continue to make great strides in unraveling the mysteries of science and bring the latest in healthcare offerings to our doctors offices.
