Former SSF Research Grant Recipient receives a 5-year, $2.14 million grant to study Sjögren's!

Congratulations to former SSF Research Grant Recipient & Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation Scientist Dr. Umesh S. Deshmukh, on being awarded a 5-year, $2.14 million grant from the National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research to study Sjögren's! 

In 2008 Dr. Deshmukh was awarded the SSF Innovative Concept Grant Winner, a 2-year research grant, when he was at the University of Virginia. The SSF research program is designed to reward exceptional research efforts & encourage investigators to continue their focus on Sjögren’s throughout their career. SSF grants are funded by your generous contributions to the Foundation and, once again, this shows that your donations are having a direct impact on research and helping us to create a future filled with hope for all patients and their families!
