A new collaboration between OHSU and UO is building partnerships to accelerate discovery and scientific impact. The first investment in this collaboration is the launch of Collaborative Seed Grants program.

Ten OHSU-UO research teams examining everything from health disparities to bio-inspired fractal implants have been awarded funding to jump-start research projects as part of the program. These projects build on the respective strengths of each institution’s researchers and unites them in a common goal toward life-changing breakthroughs that will resonate across Oregon and beyond.

Meet the recipients and learn more about their research.
