Your feedback wanted on potential Medicinal Chemistry Core

Although OHSU currently possesses significant infrastructure supporting Medicinal Chemistry, including state-of-the-art organic chemistry laboratories and talented organic chemists, this resource is not widely available to OHSU investigators. Whereas other universities have well-established Core Facilities that support drug discovery, at OHSU this activity is currently limited to individual laboratories. To meet this need at OHSU, and in response to repeated enquiries about the possibility of fee-for-service chemical synthesis, organic chemists at OHSU and the VA Hospital … Read More

Transgenic Core and University Shared Resources give four awards to strengthen grant applications

Earlier this year, the Transgenic Mouse Model Core and OHSU University Shared Resource Program held a university-wide call for applications to strengthen the competitiveness of planned grant applications or resubmissions through the generation of novel mouse lines from existing embryonic stem cell lines. The generation of these mouse lines will provide viable proof that such mouse lines can be created, valuable preliminary data, or both. The following four projects were chosen for funding: Nabil Alkayad, M.D., … Read More
