Research News is a public interactive blog published through OHSU’s Office of the Vice President with news and information for OHSU researchers, staff, and the public.
For OHSU researchers: This blog is your gateway to all things research at OHSU—need up-to-date information about new NIH-wide policies, upcoming grants, special events, upcoming workshops, and more? This is your place. We post important notifications here, so make sure to read often and check back frequently. You can customize the way your receive information from us: subscribe to funding alerts, event notifications, and so on (see ‘Customizing Research News’ below). Note that this medium is used in lieu of sending many mass emails each week; we send out blog reminders every other week highlighting important information. This format allows us to post information as it comes in without increasing email traffic.
For public users: Use this blog to read about the latest in research development at OHSU. We feature upcoming research funding opportunities, special events, commentary on new NIH and other federal funding policies, and other important updates as it pertains to grant funding and research development.

Customizing Research News
The Research News web site generates feeds that can be directed to your email inbox or to your web browser. Here are the instructions from Staff News about how to subscribe to feeds:
In your web browser:
The steps are easy, but vary slightly depending which browser you use (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.) Typically you’ll see an icon like this up above in the browser’s address bar. Click it and you’ll see instructions for how to subscribe or add a bookmark.
Note: Internet Explorer 6 has no feed-handling features, but 7 does. If you have 6 (click Help > About Internet Explorer to find out), your best bet may be to use email.
In Outlook email:

- Right-click your RSS Feeds folder, and click Add a New RSS Feed.
- Paste ([Ctrl][V]) or type a feed address into the field that appears.

As Oregon’s only academic health center, we have lots of knowledge to offer. But social media is about sharing—it’s a conversation between you, your friends and family, and the doctors, nurses, students and scientists here at OHSU. We want to hear your comments and experiences: your stories will make this conversation richer for all of us.
Please be respectful of others in your comments and be aware that anything you post online—here or elsewhere on social media sites—can be read by anyone with internet access, even many years from now.
OHSU is a learning organization, so we also analyze information on the blogs to see what we can do better—what kind of information is most helpful or interesting for community members, or if there are ways we can improve the health services we provide. That’s part of our job as an academic health center, so please remember that as you comment or share stories.
Although we’re not responsible for the content of your comments, we try to make sure that comment threads are constructive for all users. To ensure that, we may edit comments for content, delete offensive comments and attacks, block offensive contributors and delete spam or suspected spam.
And remember: though the information we share online is about health, your health situation is unique—so don’t treat anything you read here as medical advice or as creating a patient-‐provider relationship. If you have a medical issue that requires advice or treatment, please contact your doctor— at OHSU or elsewhere—so you can be sure to have a confidential conversation about your health.
