  1. Please see contact information above for Craige Mazur.

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

  3. 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!

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

  5. How do I participate in this?

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

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

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

  10. Love the new Research Week artwork!

  11. Well deserved!

  12. 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.

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

  14. 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!

  15. Awesome work!

  16. 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.

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

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

  19. 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.

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

  21. Will this presentation be available online?

  22. 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!?!

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

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

  25. I’m looking forward to this event!

  26. 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.

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

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

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

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

  31. 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!!

  32. 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.

  33. @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.

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

  36. Great catch, @Sherry. We did not have the names of those involved in this additional project at the time of publication, but our post has been updated to include them.

  37. Hello,
    It struck me that while you gave the names of those in leadership for the first 2 incubator projects, you didn’t acknowledge the leadership for I-CAN. This project is led by Peggy Wros RN Ph.D and Launa Rae Mathews RN MS. Please add their names to this posting. Thank you

  38. Hi @Mark. Here is a response to your question from OHSU Transportation and Parking.

    The process for student permits will remain the same. No monthly/annual permits will be offered to students; anyone with an emergent need will need to go through the approval process, which can be found here:

    Students may purchase hourly parking. Rates are:
    Schnitzer Parking lot:
    • Daily Parking rates: $3.00 for the 1st hour, $2.00 each additional hour, $10.00 Daily Maximum
    • Digital Parking Meters available throughout lot to purchase parking
    • Parking permit needed Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except holidays
    • Schnitzer lot will remain open 24/7

    CLSB parking garage:
    • $4.00 per hour, $22.00 per day maximum
    • This is a gate lot. Parking rates will be charged 24/7 (there is no free parking)
    • Payment will be due upon exit – credit or debit card will be needed for payment from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. (No cashier on duty)

  39. There is no information on parking lots and parking rates in this document. Our incoming students and continuing students have questions that we are unable to address. There is also a lot of misinformation out there. Administrators have heard one thing, student groups have hear another. One definitive place for comprehensive information needs to be developed. This brochure is a good start but still does not get the information out there that is needed.

    For example:
    - Parking in CLSB – $4 per hour, or $26-8 per day
    - Parking at Schnitzer lot – $10 per day free nights and weekends (no application/approval needed?)
    - Stundet Permitted Parking – Dotter lot spaces extremely limited w/ approved application and renewed every 90 days.

  40. @Mo: Just got word from OHSU Transportation and Parking that postdocs will have access to the Schnitzer Lot, which is 3-Diamond. For more information, please contact Christine Giatti at

  41. About “Faculty and staff will have access to the second level of the CLSB parking structure”, I want to ask if postdocs belong to the staff group? Thank you.

  42. Good catch, @Brian. I just fixed the link.

  43. The link “South Waterfront shuttle” is broken. It seems to be a relative rather than absolute link.

  44. Thanks, @Carrie! We’ve passed along your feedback and they are working to update the brochure.

  45. Not sure who to contact, but there is a typo in the brochure. On the back under “Collaborative Life Sciences Building”, it should read “OHSU’s newest destination”, as opposed to “neweset destination”. Here’s hoping the brochure hasn’t been printed yet!

  46. Here is a video of Andrew’s talk:

  47. Congratulations!

  48. Right now, they are not giving any tours because they are finalizing the building, but there will be an open house in the afternoon on June 26. We’ll be providing more information on that soon!

  49. Will we be able to tour the CLSB?

  50. As a non-scientist, this is perhaps my favorite event of Research Week. I’m sorry not to have seen the PSU event!

    Nice job of winning the top spot for our state and representing OHSU so well, Andrew! Also, that is some really cool work you’re doing!
