In September we announced a historic $125 million gift from Phil and Penny Knight to establish a new cardiovascular institute at OHSU. This week, the institute was officially named the OHSU Knight Cardiovascular Institute. Under the leadership of Albert Starr, M.D. and Sanjiv Kaul, M.D., the institute will aim to be a world leader in translational cardiovascular research.
This gift comes four years after the creation of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, which thanks to the Knights, has already made strides toward improving cancer treatment.
