OHSU Centers and Institutes

OHSU is home to numerous specialized research centers and institutes. Among these are one of the first Clinical and Translational Sciences Award-funded programs, the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute, and one of the strongest MRI magnets in the world, at the Advanced Imaging Research Center. Researchers at the Knight Cancer Institute were the first to demonstrate the success of molecularly targeted chemotherapies in cancer, while Vollum Institute scientists have recently solved the crystal structure of a eukaryotic glutamate receptor, revealing the molecular architecture of receptors central to communication between nerve cells, paving the way for new treatments for diseases of the nervous system. A majority of the research at OHSU is done in School of Medicine basic science and clinical departments.
