Dotter Interventional Institute


Frederick S. Keller Chair of Interventional Radiology

In 2006, an endowed chair, the Frederick S. Keller Chair of Interventional Radiology was established at OHSU. It was established to honor the outstanding work and multiple contributions of Dr. Keller in interventional radiology and at OHSU. Dr. Keller was an early pioneer in embolotherapy with emphasis on GI bleeding, treatment of tumors and pulmonary disease. He helped to develop new techniques in these areas and disseminated his knowledge around the world having authored or co-authored over 240 papers and chapters and presented over 1,000 lectures in many countries. Dr. Keller has been the Director of the Dotter Institute since 1993. He has been an excellent leader for the Institute, navigating university politics with uncanny ability. His leadership over the years has strengthened the Dotter Institute in OHSU and promoted it worldwide setting an excellent example of how an independent interventional radiology department can function in an academic university medical center.

Funds for the endowed came from a generous donation from Cook Group Inc. After evaluating several candidates, the Dotter Institute was pleased to announce that John Kaufman, MD was selected as the first holder of the Frederick S. Keller Chair of Interventional Radiology.
