You can contribute to making DMICE successful! Please consider a gift to advance our educational and research missions.
Despite our success, the majority of our funding is restricted. Federal grants, for example, do not allow investment in new faculty, students, or research explorations. As we face an increasingly competitive environment, it is critical that we have unrestricted support to pursue new research opportunities and attract the best and brightest students.
Dating back to 1998, we have over 700 alumni who have received over 780 degrees and certificates. OHSU is a leader in biomedical informatics around the country and the world. A gift can enable a faculty member to improve their teaching or develop a new course. It can also provide scholarships, travel funds, or other support to help current or prospective students, or provide aid to those in need.
Transformative gifts include our first philanthropy-funded scholarship, the Dr. Frank Naeymi-Rad and Dr. Theresa A. Kepic Scholarship for Biomedical Informatics. Dr. Naeymi-Rad is the founder of Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO), Inc. and Dr. Kepic is an obstetrics and gynecology physician.
We also received a plethora of new research grants often reported in our blog: Health Data, Information and Action. A gift can allow a faculty member to pursue a promising new area of their research or develop a spinoff that may, for example, lead to commercialization.
