Research Programs

The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute’s 150 plus members are affiliated with one or more of our research programs supported by our NCI Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG). 

These programs form an interdisciplinary and collaborative infrastructure to enable the full spectrum of translational research to be conducted.  Work done by Knight physicians and scientists advance our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of this disease and advance discoveries to improve detection, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer.
