"The mission of the Wichita Medical Research & Education Foundation is to promote research, education and community efforts designed to improve the health of Kansans."

Our goals in support of our Vision:

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 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.

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.
