The OHSU Research Council
The Oregon Health & Science University Research Council serves as an advisory body to the Vice President for Research, helping to guide the institution on matters such as assessing the needs of the research community, creating and evaluating core resources, and serving as a direct link from investigators to the VP's office. The Research Council meets monthly and has representatives from all schools as well as from the independent centers and institutes at OHSU.
Dan Dorsa, Vice President for Research, invited investigators in the OHSU research community to serve as members of a re-constituted OHSU Research Council in 2004 (the first such council was established by President Kohler in 2000 during his term as interim Vice President for Research). At its initial meeting on December 9, 2004, Dr. Dorsa encouraged the Research Council to establish its own organizational structure, meeting frequency, and agendas. Deans, chairs, and institute heads were asked to submit nominations for council members, and members were invited to be broadly representative of the OHSU research community, rather than as representatives of specific constituencies. Since then, they have created a number of task forces, committees, and reports to address areas of need in the research community.
