The Center for Translational Biomedical Research
The Center for Translational Biomedical Research, a partnership between PeaceHealth and the University of Oregon’s Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, aims to forge biomedical research collaborations that produce increased research grant funding, journal publications and translation of new medical technologies. Postdoctoral fellowships for candidates from underrepresented communities in science and engineering mark the center’s first effort.
Knight Campus-PeaceHealth Postdoctoral Fellowships
Fellows will work with UO faculty members and PeaceHealth providers on mentored independent research with a clinical emphasis in the PeaceHealth medical domains. The fellowship offers support tailored to the career development of postdoctoral scientists and engineers from underrepresented communities, as defined by the National Science Foundation. While scientific themes will evolve over time, the focus will remain on training individuals whose interests are grounded in the interface of clinical and applied science. A panel of UO and PeaceHealth representatives selected the following projects to receive initial support:
