Do you work with an outstanding researcher you’d like to see recognized? Each year, the Medical Research Foundation of Oregon recognizes Oregonians in the categories of cutting-edge research and mentorship.

  • The Discovery Award acknowledges an Oregon investigator who has made significant, original contributions to health‐related research while working in Oregon. Basic, clinical, behavioral sciences, health care delivery, health informatics and health outcomes research are all eligible. Nominations must be submitted by June 22, 2018.
  • The Mentor Award is presented to an Oregonian who has provided outstanding leadership in support or development of health research, education or the advancement of health care.
  • The Richard T. Jones New Investigator Award recognizes an early-career investigator who shows exceptional promise in biomedical research. This individual must be within seven years of completing clinical and/or post‐doctoral training and will be judged on the basis of independence, quality of science, national funding and first- or senior-authored publications in peer‐reviewed biomedical research journals.

Nomination instructions and detailed information about each award are available on the Medical Research Foundation Awards webpage.
