About this event
The Center for Experimental Therapeutics at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is working to develop better treatments for cancer patients through collaboration within OHSU and with other academic centers, biotech and pharma companies around the world.
The center unites cutting-edge technologies with a multidisciplinary group of clinicians and scientists to advance drug discovery and development. OHSU is one of the few universities nationally, to bring together the infrastructure to translate scientific discoveries from the lab into effective therapies for human diseases.
The center focuses on drug development and discovery from preclinical phases to clinical and translational research.
