Knight Cancer Research Building opens new era in cancer research
CEDAR is housed in the Knight Cancer Research Building, a seven-story, 320,000-square-foot building designed for collaboration. This state-of-the-art research facility features an open laboratory design, centralized, shared equipment and core facilities in order to bring together people from different scientific disciplines and accelerate research progress.
Dedicated to improving the lives and health of our community
CEDAR is a collaborative organization within the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. It represents one component of the institute's two-pronged attack on cancer: precision early detection and precision oncology.
