Sneak Peak of OHSU's New Knight Cancer Research Building

January 23, 2018

This morning, Nick toured Oregon Health and Science University’s new Knight Cancer Research Building.

The facility is under construction at OHSU’s South Waterfront campus and will open this fall. It’s a cutting-edge space for scientists, data analysts, and researchers to work collaboratively to find a cure for cancer.

The building was funded through a public-private partnership, including a major donation from Phil Knight. The City of Portland lobbied the State Legislature to contribute $200 million in bonding authority toward the project.
