WMREF Statement of Purpose:

"To engage in medical research and development and related activities all exclusively charitable, scientific or educational in nature."

New techniques for patient diagnosis and care have been discovered, tested and refined through research projects sponsored and funded by Wichita Medical Research and Education Foundation (WMREF). Established in 1949 as a not-for-profit corporation, Wichita Medical Research and Education Foundation (WMREF) actively encourages through funding and design opportunities, those projects that may advance knowledge in the diagnosis, treatment and cure of illness.

The Foundation promotes research for the development of new medical skills and knowledge which serve patients from Wichita and throughout Kansas. Research papers are published in nationally recognized journals and medical publications. WMREF sponsored research projects often receive national funding for more extensive programs and research.

Limited funds are available to support research in other areas of interest such as:

Pediatric Research                                                         Orthopedics
Women's Health                                                              Psychiatric Care
Diabetes                                                                          Sickle Cell Anemia
Geriatrics                                                                         Cancer Research

                                 And a limited amount of unrestricted funds.

The services of the WMREF are made available to all physicians, medical residents, and other recognized scientifically qualified investigators in the Wichita area.

In order to give new research a timely start, board policy directs that the majority of available research funds go toward providing "seed money" for promising new projects.

                   To inquire about research funding opportunities contact the office at                              316-686-7172 or pjohnson@wmref-ks.org.

Medical research is not a solitary endeavor. Your gift of membership dues, endowment gifts, memorials, and bequests provides many opportunities for the Foundation to gain knowledge to improve the chances for all of us to live longer, happier, healthier lives.
