is an international leader in cancer research and personalized cancer treatment. The director, Brian Druker, M.D., helped usher in the era of personalized cancer medicine with his discovery that cancer cells could be shut down by disabling the molecules that drive their growth without harming healthy cells. The drug that resulted from that research, Gleevec®, revolutionized how cancer is treated. It also inspired a new wave of exploration of treatments that target cancer-causing molecules.
With the mission of ending cancer as we know it, the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute continues to build its scientific and clinical leadership and cancer treatment resources. Public support and private philanthropy – including a transformative $100 million gift from Nike Chairman Phil Knight and his wife Penny in 2008 – have provided crucial resources to advance our progress.
OHSU announced June 25, 2015 that it had reached the $500 million fundraising goal that triggers another $500 million from Nike co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny. With $1 billion in new funding, the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute will begin fast-track recruitment of 250 to 300 scientists and physician investigators, all focused on one thing: early detection of lethal cancers. You can be part of this unstoppable movement against cancer.
