  • OHSU Knight Cancer Institute researchers have built a new kind of clinical trials platform to find combinations of drugs to use, like a one-two punch, to stop tumors before they can adapt and become drug-resistant. Their goal is to make treatment more effective, long-lasting and tolerable for people with cancer.

    The new platform makes it possible to study each person’s tumor in great detail, track how cancer cells evolve in response to treatment, and use the information to select combinations of drugs tailored for the individual.

  • Dr. Farah A. Husain is a veteran of the United States Army. She served four years in the reserves and nine years active duty, deploying twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. While deployed she served as a trauma and general surgeon in far-forward arenas, once with a Forward Surgical Team and once with a Combat Support Hospital.

I've learned not to be scared of these moments, but rather, embrace them and see it as an opportunity.”

    To Dr. Husain and to all the brave men and women who serve our country: Thank you.

  • "As both a scientist and a mother, I needed to better understand how Yuna’s brain works,” said Soo. “I wanted to discover a pathway for treatment to help my daughter.”

    For more than 20 years, Soo Lee, Ph.D., and Jae W. Lee, Ph.D., have studied the specialized functions of transcription factors including FOX proteins, a family of 40-plus genes integral to the lifetime development and function of such organs as the brain and heart. Unbeknownst to Soo, what started as an idea for an interesting scientific experiment would ultimately inspire her life’s work.
