Research programs and shared resources
The best new strategies for diagnosis, treatment and control of cancer will come from identifying and understanding the molecular defects present in cancer cells. The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute explores this frontier with a series of innovative research programs that each interface with clinical care.
The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute also provides a diverse set of cutting-edge shared resources (research facilities) to its members as a way to control costs while providing top quality lab work and quick results.
Research programs and shared resources are supported through the NCI Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG).
