Mission and Knight Cancer History
We’ve made a promise to the people of Oregon to make the state’s death rate from cancer the lowest in the U.S. Our commitment to fulfilling this goal powers all we do - pushing us to learn more about what causes cancer and how it can be stopped. With over 200 clinical trials in progress, we are searching for new cures, standards of care, treatments and therapies for cancer.
Our mission statement
At the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, we see a world without cancer. As pioneers in personalized cancer medicine, we continue to change the way the world understands and fights this disease. We will:
- Provide individually-tailored, compassionate care for every patient, from diagnosis through survivorship.
- Discover new ways to prevent cancer.
- Develop new personalized cancer therapies.
We will end cancer as we know it.
