PHF Funding-2021

Presbyterian Health Foundation Research Grants Program - 2021

The Oklahoma City-based Presbyterian Health Foundation (PHF) was formed from proceeds of the sale of Presbyterian Hospital in 1985 and, in 2014, sought to establish a unique collaboration with OUHSC via the PHF Research Grant Program (Bridge, Seed, Team Science, Equipment, Clinical Scientist Development, Research Support, and Symposia Grants).  This grant program funds multiple types of projects and has enabled the progression of pioneering concepts to research studies, the establishment of renowned clinicians and basic scientists transdisciplinary teams unifying a broad range of expertise and skills, the development of extremely talented junior faculty, the provision of infrastructure support for faculty to continue ground-breaking research, and more.  The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center would like to express our sincerest appreciation to the Presbyterian Health Foundation for their long standing generous support.

Since 2014, PHF has given $19.9 million to support the PHF Research Grants Program that funds multiple types of grants (e.g., Bridge, Seed, Team Science, Equipment, Clinical Scientist Development, Research Support, and Symposia Grants) and has committed up to an additional $4.15 million for 2021. To date, this investment has facilitated the ability of our researchers to successfully compete at the national level and develop research programs, resulting in approximately $182.29 million in extramural funding.

PHF grants are awarded once a year, with the exception of the Bridge Grant Program.  The Bridge Grant Program is the ONLY program that has three application deadlines per year (April, August, November).  Provided below is the Grant Cycles Table.
