The CLSB partners
Oregon Health & Science University
OHSU’s educational space in the new building will accommodate an inter-professional simulation center as well as the first two years of the university’s M.D. program and all four years of its Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) program. It will also house its Physician Assistant program. All three programs will grow as a result of the move. The radiation technology program, associated directors’ and deans’ offices, and student and faculty support services will all move to the new building. The building also will be home to OHSU's Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine, with highly specialized laboratory equipment that will allow all three universities to build their research programs over the coming years.
Oregon State University
The OSU/OHSU Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program, previously located in the OHSU Center for Health & Healing, will move to the new Collaborative Live Sciences Building and will have the capacity to increase its class size from 90 to 115 students. It will include a 150-person lecture hall, three classrooms and clinical practice labs, space for eight additional faculty members, a six-fold increase in research laboratory space, conference rooms, learning clinics and a state-of-the-art medical simulation center.
Portland State University
Portland State will expand its research programs in chemistry, biology and biochemistry into the new building with the benefit of three new research labs, three offices and six work stations. PSU also will have more education space with 17 new teaching labs and a 406-seat lecture hall. It will relocate its introductory biology and chemistry lectures and labs to the new structure – a great benefit to PSU undergrads who previously had to contend with tight space at PSU’s main campus.
