Without the support of thoughtful and generous donors, our team would not be able to conduct cutting-edge research. There are two ways to contribute to our research and operations directly.

One of ORCATECH's integral members, Tamara Hayes, passed away in 2013. This fund has been set up to encourage and recognize outstanding graduate students in Biomedical Engineering at OHSU. This is particularly fitting for Tamara's passion, and what she would want to see continue.

Donate to the fund
