OHSU

Public Outreach

Public OutreachScientists have a responsibility to communicate their research findings to the public, and ONPRC scientists and administration take this responsibility seriously. The Office of Education Outreach hosts tours for over 3,000 visitors to the Center each year.

ONPRC scientists speak to Center visitors, serve as mentors for teachers and students, visit area classrooms, and serve as speakers at meetings of civic organizations and elsewhere in the community. In addition, they participate in various programs through OHSU's Science Education Opportunities Office (SOAR), and collaborate with several local and regional institutions, including Saturday Academy, OMSI, and the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR).
