In his current role as an Agreements Officer at OHSU Technology Transfer, Jim manages industry-sponsored research, research collaboration, material transfer and confidentiality agreements for OHSU.
Jim’s primary training is in molecular biology, beginning his 20-year tenure at OHSU in Dermatology where he studied biochemical pathways involved in dermatological and head and neck cancers. From there he moved on to the OHSU Knight BioLibrary to set up and manage a small team which continues to support scientists who seek valuable specimens for their research.
Jim received his M.S. in Natural Sciences at the State University of New York at Buffalo while working at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and his B.S. in Biology, also in his hometown at SUNY Buffalo. Gardening, pinochle, camping, and walking his retired racing Greyhound Swampers are a few things that occupy his time when away from the office.
