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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  10. Great story, thanks!

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

  12. 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.

  13. ha ha!

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

  15. 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.

  16. Please see contact information above for Craige Mazur.

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

  18. 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!

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

  20. How do I participate in this?

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

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

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

  25. Love the new Research Week artwork!

  26. Well deserved!

  27. 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.

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

  29. 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!

  30. Awesome work!

  31. 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.

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

  33. Also, there will be slides from today’s presentation uploaded to the OCTRI Research Forum web page early next week. Please visit:

  34. Hello,
    Our apologies for the delay- No, this event will not be recorded. We are currently developing a plan for live recording and archiving and will share this news as soon as it is available. Thank you.

  35. I second Dr. Crossen’s request for an online availabillity, whether live that day or recorded for later viewing (or preferably both!).

  36. Will this presentation be available online?

  37. Ethics around end of life care is so important. The emphasis on clarifying patient desires and education on following those stated desires is such honorable work. I appreciate someone making this a life focus. I also am so impressed with Dr. Tolle’s donation of her award money to the Center. Aren’t we all lucky to have her in Oregon!?!

  38. Yes, we know – but I will add a note saying so. Thank you!

  39. FYI the full text of the article is behind a paywall.

  40. I’m looking forward to this event!

  41. From my experience in the communities in the portland metro- area, insured does not always equal clinic homes or access. Many people we see at the community centers complain about access to clinics suitable to meet their needs.

  42. Looks like RAIN may be returning around the same time that rain finally returns. :)

  43. This sounds really exciting – a healthcare-focused Moth/RadioLab/TED mashup. Putting it on my calendar!

  44. Hi! Is there a flyer for this event that could be emailed to me? Thank you!

  45. Great to hear! I haven’t been to one yet, but am excited to attend this year.

  46. All of us here on the Cardiovascular ICU have known Dr. Hutchens for years, he is a brillant and diligent man. Very excited to see his hard work coming to fruition. Grats Mike!!

  47. These Ignite events are quite amazing. I can’t speak for the Ignite Health one in particular, but the Ignite Portland event last fall was very informative and entertaining.

    I’m definitely interested in checking this out.

  48. @Betts Per the OHSU FAQs: You can share Box account folders or files with virtually anyone. Sharing files or folders with users outside of OHSU will require that they setup a account and use a password that adheres to OHSU standards. Each user is responsible for only sharing appropriate files with appropriate users based on OHSU policies and guidelines.

    Betts, you should be able to share files – Staff News tell us you just need to email a shared file link and the recipient signs into, or sets up an account if necessary. Of course, given the size constraints, I don’t know how realistic this will be.

  50. Will we be able to share files with research collaborators outside OHSU?
