Knight Cancer Research Building

The Knight Cancer Research Building is home to 338 top researchers (and counting), all working together to end cancer as we know it. The breakthroughs made here will quickly become the medicine practiced next-door at the Center for Health & Healing Building 2 — and around the world.

This seven-story research building opened in September 2018, and is uniquely designed to drive collaboration among the world’s leading experts in cancer research, from a wide range of disciplines. This $190 million project was made possible with $160 million from the Oregon Legislature and $30 million from donors who helped OHSU meet the $1B Knight Cancer Challenge.

It’s your building, too. We’re inviting community members to Knight School, a series of free monthly events to share our exciting work. Come hear inspiring stories and news from doctors, scientists and patients on the leading edge of cancer discovery. Each one-hour session will bring science to life, with several speakers and time for your questions.

Rood Family Pavilion

The Gary and Christine Rood Family Pavilion, a modern, welcoming guest house is designed to be a healing home away from home - just steps from our Center for Health & Healing clinics and a tram ride away from Marquam Hill.

Patients and families will have the opportunity to stay in 76 guest suites, with half reserved for pediatric patients and half for adults. This five-story building features everything families need: places to rest, work, prepare meals and gather, indoors and out.

The Rood Family Pavilion was built with entirely through the generosity of donors, including a lead $12 million gift from Gary and Christine Rood of Vancouver, Washington. It will be operated in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon & Southwest Washington.

All guests will be screened by OHSU social work for housing eligibility.
