Our vision

OHSU researchers transform science every day with their discoveries. Whether it is in the lab, the clinic, the community, or the larger world, our work is challenging the status quo to improve health for all Oregonians and beyond.

How do we do it? By working together across disciplines and with partners all over the world. OHSU is renowned for both its collaborative culture and its freedom to innovate. Our resources and culture provide the nidus for ambitious experimentation, leading to major discoveries in neuroscience, cancer biology and treatment, infectious disease, and beyond.




2019 Art of Science Competition People's Choice Award

Sally Finch, 3 sites
The People's Choice Award went to Sally Finch. Her graphite and acrylic ink triptych represents demographic information on samples from three sites in Mark Harmon’s study of tree decomposition in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest.

2019 Art of Science Competition winners

The 2019 OHSU Art of Science competition invited submissions of visual explorations of science, particularly visually compelling images produced during the course of research. OHSU Research & Innovation and Nikon, sponsors of the competition, selected first, second and third place awards. The OHSU community selected the People’s Choice Award through an open competition. 

Alexandra Pincus, M.D./Ph.D. produced the first place image
Alexandra Pincus, M.D./Ph.D. candidate in the School of Medicine’s Neuroscience Graduate Program imaged the winning entry in the OHSU Advanced Light Microscopy Core. The confocal image titled “Parasympathetic nerve ganglion in the mouse airway,” shows a cluster of airway parasympathetic nerves, called a ganglion. Nerves have been labeled with fluorescent probes that target a ubiquitous nerve protein (red) and a light-activated protein called channelrhodopsin (green). Cells appear yellow due to the overlapping expression of these proteins. Sensory nerves (blue) and are seen running alongside the parasympathetic ganglion. The mice have been genetically modified to express channelrhodopsin in parasympathetic nerves, which allows researchers to study how neuronal control of bronchoconstriction changes in diseases such as asthma.

Second place went to “Untitled” by Audrey Tran, second year student in the School of Medicine.
Audrey Tran, a second-year student in the School of Medicine, produced the second-place image, "Untitled."

June Treerat, Ph.D., from the Department of Restorative Dentistry, submitted the third place award, “Socialization.”
Ulrike Redanz, Ph.D., produced the third-place scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image used in a manuscript by June Treerat, Ph.D., who submitted the image in the competition. The image, produced in the Multiscale Microscopy Core, shows an ability to form clumping cells of an oral commensal Corynebacterium durum. This is one of the unique features of this bacterium, which allows other oral commensals to colocalize and protect the oral cavity. Redanz and Treerat are postdoctoral fellows in the Department of Restorative Dentistry.
