|About||A leader in cancer research, the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute provides individually tailored, compassionate care, from diagnosis through survivorship.|
Our mission is to:
Provide compassionate multidisciplinary care. Our medical care teams offer the full spectrum of cancer care including comprehensive assessment and diagnosis, leading-edge treatments, and support services. Our multidisciplinary team approach means experts from different specialties work together to develop customized care plans for each patient.
Translate research discoveries into new hope. As one of 65 designated centers of the National Cancer Institute and as part of Oregon’s only academic medical center, we bring discoveries out of the lab and to the patient’s bedside. Each year we publish hundreds of research findings, conduct more than 1,000 research projects, and manage approximately 400 clinical trials.
Educate the next generation of cancer specialists. Through residencies, fellowships, programs for high school students, graduate programs, and continuing education for community doctors, we are building a team of experts for tomorrow.
Establish effective outreach and education programs to encourage better screening, cancer prevention and healthy lifestyles.
As the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center between Seattle and Sacramento, we have lots of knowledge to offer. But social media is about sharing — it’s a conversation between you, your friends and family, and the doctors, nurses, students and scientists here at OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. We want to hear your comments and experiences: your stories are what make this conversation richer for all of us.
Please be respectful of others in your comments. We try to make sure that conversation is constructive for all users and may delete offensive comments, spam or suspected spam.
Although the information we share online is about health, we cannot provide medical advice for your personal health situation. If you have a medical issue that requires advice or treatment, we encourage you to contact your primary care provider. For more information, please read ou
