The first round of funding began on January 1, 2016 and required at least one OSU and one OHSU investigator. Collaborative efforts were a major criteria for funding.
Six research pilot projects ($50,000 each) and five team pilot projects ($10,000 each) were funded.
Research Pilot Projects
The first scientific retreat was held on August 31, 2015 at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center at Oregon State University. Over 80 scientists from OHSU and OSU attended the retreat which included short presentations on research interests, small breakout sessions to encourage collaborations and a poster session.
The second scientific retreat is tentatively scheduled for November 1, 2016 at Oregon State University and will include a similar program. In addition, funded team and research pilot investigators will give updates.
Attendance is free and is open to all OHSU and OSU faculty and staff. Registration is tentatively scheduled to open in September 2016, with more information to follow.
