FPP 21469239 Research Week 2017 ART RGB

Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to join me in celebrating OHSU Research Week, May 1-3, 2017, our annual celebration of research at Oregon Health & Science University. More than 200 OHSU researchers will be presenting their latest findings throughout the week. I encourage you to show your support by attending talks and poster sessions. Many of the presenters are trainees, the future of the biomedical research workforce.

In addition to OHSU presenters, we have an exceptional lineup of events scheduled. Specific highlights from the Research Week program include:

  • An opening reception and all-OHSU poster session in the BICC, Monday, May 1;
  • Posters and oral presentations on a range of topics, from neuroscience to nursing, beginning Monday at 1 p.m. and continuing through Wednesday afternoon;
  • Keynote addresses by Nicholas J. Strausfeld, Ph.D. and Reshma Jagsi, M.D., D.Phil.;
  • Student day, Tuesday, May 2, will feature a host of panel discussions on topics such as mentor/mentee relationships and non-academic careers. The day will conclude with a CV/resume review mixer. If you’d like to have your CV or resume reviewed by one of our experts, you’ll need to sign up here;
  • OHSU’s 5th annual Three Minute Thesis competition, Wednesday, May 3.

The full schedule can be found here.

The work of our research scientists, students, postdocs, and staff is the foundation underlying OHSU’s success as an academic health center. I hope you will help me celebrate their achievements by attending Research Week events.


Dan Dorsa, Ph.D.
