Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center


General Information

The Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center (BRC) directly supports the research mission of the Health Sciences Center. The BRC is comprised of 233,000 gross square feet of space dedicated to biomedical, cancer and genetics research. The facility includes 48 research laboratories, core laboratories, BSL3 containment lab, vivarium and laboratory support spaces.

At the OUHSC,research grants and contracts and sponsored program awards exceeded $142.5 million in FY 2011. As reported by the Office of Research Administration, this amount represents a 4.1% decrease over FY 2010. The research awards of $142.5 million in FY 2011 included over $86.5 million in federal support, $28.7 million from industry, $20.4 million from non-profit enterprises, and over $6.7 million from the State. Federal funding accounted for 61% of the total funding awarded to OUHSC. Greater than 61% of all federal funding represented competitive awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Research facilities growth and development have been due to the tremendous growth in NIH support, major contributions from the Presbyterian Health Foundation (PHF) and the University Hospitals Trust, and recognition as an institution of emerging excellence. The establishment of two centers, including the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) and the PHS Native American Center of Excellence (COE), has enhanced the University's research position.
