Research Week: New Faculty Lightning Rounds today!

What new research is under way at OHSU? What will be the next big thing to come out of an OHSU lab? We asked all faculty members hired since January 2013 to join us at Research Week to share their exciting new work with the rest of the research community. New to Research Week in 2015, this event allows faculty members new to the university to showcase their project or program in a five-minute, one-slide presentation.
