  1. Now that sounds like a very interesting workshop! Cool stuff!

  2. A great initiative taken by OSHU Library to send students who are interested in research and data communication to this important conference. The participants will gain a lot of knowledge on open data and open communication and how to enhance scholarly communication.

  3. You mention that metabolic stress may induce the cells to proliferate or change from one cell type to another. Do cells really change or is change manifested in resultant daughter cells? It seems that years ago I heard a speaker insist that cells do not actually change but rather daughter cells resulting from cell division can switch types relative to their parent cell.

  4. Elyse, specifically the rule says that employers could “reduce the amount of pay allocated to base salary (provided that the employee still earns at least the applicable hourly minimum wage) and add pay to account for overtime for hours worked over 40 in the workweek, to hold total weekly pay constant.” The full guidance is here: See Question 9.

  5. You state that “The Department of Labor gives a number of options for compliance besides paying overtime: for example, salaries could be raised to surpass the threshold, comp time could be offered, or base pay could be reduced”. Can you provide references to the idea that pay could be reduced? I have only found the following options to comply with the new rules & regulations: (1) Raise salary and keep the employee exempt from overtime; (2) Pay overtime in addition to the employee’s current salary when necessary; or (3) Evaluate and realign hours and staff workload.


  6. Until a system to keep track of postdoc researchers time is implemented, I don’t see how this will work. Right now leave time for postdocs is tracked 2 ways; 1) honor system, or 2) manually by division admins. I trust OHSU is working on a plan for this section of worker.

  7. As usual, an accurate portrayal of the situation, cleanly written. Thanks Rachel!

  8. Yes! Recordings of past Marquam Hill lectures are available here.

  9. Yikes, sounds terrifying. Are there any way to see these lectures after they’ve occurred or for non-students to see them?

  10. Unfortunately, we are not able to record this seminar.

  11. It looks like a great seminar! Unfortunately I cannot attend. Can you make the recording available perhaps? That would be great, perhaps for several of us.

  12. Will this talk be available online? I’m afraid I will be working during this time period.

  13. We’re not planning to record this, but we can come out to West Campus to do a similar presentation.

  14. Will this be streamed online for those who cannot attend in person? Or a recording posted later for viewing?

  15. Hi Amber – nope! all you need to do is show up.

  16. Will we need to register for this in Compass?

  17. I’d be curious to know what type of fat they were being fed.

  18. Can’t wait to read the results of this trial

  19. This is a fantastic technology for ophthalmologists !
    We use OCT angiography every day, in France.

  20. This is such important research for this patient population, in terms of quality of life. Thanks for this Kerri and also, for all you have done to advance research in this important area.

  21. Tumor monitoring in a drop of blood! Yes, it’s coming. The ability to monitor cancer non-invasively via a finger-prick (not multiple blood tubes) is an unprecedented breakthrough and will be driving the rapid uptake of precision medicine. This technological advancement by CirculoGene Theranostics will further harness tools for cfDNA NGS analysis, profiling circulating genome, and improving test turnaround time, accuracy and treatment outcomes.

  22. Postdocs, thanks so much for everything you do to make OHSU research successful. Your work is critical! We appreciate all that you do.

  23. Thanks for sharing Karen. Good info to have as we share our story with the larger community.

  24. This is good news to have someone capable like Brendan!

  25. Congratulations, Drs. Hong Ma and Shoukhrat Mitalipov! Your paper is indeed a breakthrough.

  26. This is fantastic! Congrats, Dr. Cohen!

  27. My husband is recently mostly retired pathologist who specialized in cervical cancer and I am a mostly retired internal medicine and pap capable Pa
    Georgie scott

  28. Great story, thanks!

  29. I did miss the 3MT event and was crestfallen about that. Thank you for sharing this!

  30. This presentation is intended to provide an overview of this remarkable project, and to inform regarding the disease, heart pumps, and early-stage medical device ventures. It will also include:
    -Dr. Albert Starr; vision and goals
    -Dr. Howard Song & Dr. Jim Mudd; application of mechanical circulatory support in end-stage heart failure, role of artificial heart in therapy
    -Bob Benkowski; medical device development
    -Clyde Taylor; the Company and business issues relevant to commercial device development.

  31. ha ha!

  32. Wonderful to see this possibility being developed. Kudos to you, Jeff, from one of your former professors (in pathology).

  33. This looks amazing. I”ll be teaching at this time and won’t be able to attend. Will there be a link to a live stream? I’d love to have my students experience this.

  34. Please see contact information above for Craige Mazur.

  35. We are working on flyers for upcoming Research Week events and will post links to them on the website soonest. Stay tuned!

  36. That’s a great suggestion. Susan Shugerman, heads up education outreach for OHSU. We’ll be sure to pass this on to her. Thank you!

  37. Is there a flyer just for this talk available as a PDF?

  38. How do I participate in this?

  39. What a terrific resource! Thanks for making this available.

  40. Gorgeous! Really hope this is being passed along to educators – the raw beauty of basic science could inspire a generation of future researchers, clinicians, artists – and thinking adults everywhere!

  41. Hi Anna Marie,
    We didn’t record this one, but we can help you individually–and we’ll probably do another workshop as more information on the new biosketch becomes available.

  42. Will this be recorded? unfortunately I have a conflicting meeting that can’t be rescheduled but I definitely need to learn about this!

  43. Love the new Research Week artwork!

  44. Well deserved!

  45. Congratulations to the Let’s Get Healthy! team and OCTRI. The earlier we engage students in healthy living, the healthier they will be as adults.

  46. I attended the IEA program to Germany in 2014. Feel free to contact me at if you are applying and have any questions.

  47. Thanks Elisa and LeeAnn! About 1 million women in the US are high-risk for breast cancer and receive annual MRI scans. This technology will probably significantly improve detection rates, result in earlier treatment and thus improve outcome. Great work by Charlie and his team of AIRC scientists!

  48. Awesome work!

  49. This is so exciting! Congrats to all involved! the heart wrenching, gut churning wait between first finding “something there” and getting that biopsy result clearing you may someday be a thing of the past.

  50. If vibrations in the mouse rooms are detected, will the construction project require IACUC approval?
