Philip Copenhaver, Ph.D., receives 2016 women’s health Circle of Giving grant

Philip CopenhaverThe OHSU Center for Women’s Health Circle of Giving, a group of philanthropic women who pool and target their resources to advance women’s health research at OHSU, selected Philip Copenhaver, Ph.D., from the department of Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology to receive their annual grant. The grant will support Dr. Copenhaver and his collaborators to investigate the potential of STX, a novel selective estrogen receptor modulator, to have long-term protective effects on neurons in the brain. Ultimately, his research will be used to see whether STX can be used as an alternative to estrogen use in preventing dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

The Circle of Giving grant is focused exclusively on OHSU researchers who wish to launch new ideas and innovations in a broad range of women’s health issues. The next grant cycle will begin in December 2016. Please contact Casey Conrad for more information about submission requirements.
