Being one of the top research institutes in the country is a fact we are very Molly Stillwellproud of at OHSU, and a fact that caught the eye of Molly Stillwell, the research volunteer who became an OHSU employee. Starting as a research volunteer in 2014 Molly had a goal of gaining experience in the field of psychological research. While still a student, Molly quickly adapted to learn how to create and manage databases, review abstracts, and facilitate the completion of documents for publication in brain trauma research. Molly states that the flexibility in her volunteer role allowed for a greater experience. Read more about Molly's experience.
