OHSU to receive National Institutes of Health research grants

Posted by BCI Staff on Thu, Mar 31, 2011

The latest list of grants for the National Institutes of Health shows Oregon Health and Science University receiving a substantial amount of new research grants.  OHSU received 415 of the NIH's 676 Oregon grants for a grand total of $184.2 million in research funding.

OHSU received almost 4 times as many research grants than the next 2 universities on the list combined (University of Oregon received 64 research grants valued at 25.6 million, Oregon State University received 53 grants valued at 20.3 million).

This huge new funding for Oregon Health and Science University comes as no surprise given their position as a leading research university for Biotechnology, Life science and Medical Science research.       (Image courtesy of the NIH)       

The extensive research areas at OHSU include: brain function and engagement in older adults, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, therapy for Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic inflammatory pain, and adolescents at risk for chronic pain.

To connect with the researchers at Oregon Health and Science University plan on attending Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.'s Biotechnology Research Faire™ at OHSU on September 1 of this year.
