I am so grateful to the Oregonians who support research at OHSU. This week I had the chance to meet some of the Hillcrest Committee, who helped fund our investigation into drug resistance associated with HER2 positive breast cancer. This project is an ongoing collaboration with the Korkola group. In addition to meeting some of the donors (really inspiring women!) I had a chance to catch up with some of my colleagues and hear about the ground-breaking work that they are doing with support of these donors.
