Helmerich Lab

The Helmerich Research Center (HRC), located near downtown Tulsa, is a high-tech facility that will play a crucial role for the National Center for Wellness and Recovery. A new laboratory will house the NCWR’s synthetic organic chemistry and analytical chemistry facilities. These researchers will work together on new drug design and analysis related to pain and substance use disorders. This specialized lab will be used for small scale and large scale synthesis of potential drug molecules that will target important pathways in the brain relevant to pain and addiction.

CHS Vivarium

Our in vivo sciences researchers will work closely with our medicinal chemists to design and optimize new drug-candidate molecules by establishing relationships between chemical structure and biological measurements including results from epidemiology, neuroscience, genetics and behavioral sciences. In addition, the group will be exploring the effects of differing routes of drug administration on behavior and optimal efficacy. NCWR researchers will be imaging specific regions of the brain to evaluate the effect(s) of drug exposure on neurons. The team also will be studying drug metabolism and tissue distribution to determine and optimize the duration of action of experimental molecules and to establish quantitative relationships between exposure to drugs in the blood and pharmacological effect(s).

Biotech Life Sciences Lab 

The National Center for Wellness and Recovery biotech lab, situated in the heart of downtown Tulsa within the newly established OSU Academic Medical District, is poised to be a groundbreaking hub for cutting-edge research and innovation. Covering an expansive 30,000 square feet, this state-of-the-art facility has been made possible by a $50 million ARPA grant. The lab is designed to cater to a diverse range of research needs including multiple chemistry and pharmacology labs, a tissue culture lab and an analytical lab. The space will also feature a clinical trial suite, well-equipped office spaces and modern conference rooms facilitating collaboration and fostering groundbreaking discoveries. The project is slated for completion in 2025, promising to be a vital component of Tulsa’s growing biotech and healthcare landscape.
