Open House for Research Week!

It's Research Week 2015 at OHSU and HC&A is joining in the fun! Alongside May 8th's History of Medicine lecture on the Philadelphia Chromosome, we are hosting an open house Tuesday (that's today!) and Wednesday from 12pm-4pm in the History of Medicine Room in the Old Library - just up the steps from the main Research Week action! 

We are sharing programs from past OHSU research events, artifacts from the history of research at the university, and a sneak peak of some of the materials from our LSTA digitization and data curation project! (If you are a public health nerd and love historical renderings of data, these are the materials for you...)

Here's a sampling of the materials we've pulled out to share with all of the awesome folks who are filling the Old Library with research excitement and energy this week:

UOMS/OHSU research events through the ages!

Artificial heart valves from the Jeri L. Dobbs Collection

Haven't you always wanted to get up close and personal with a Starr-Edwards valve??



What do these cool artifact have to do with the history of research at the university? You'll have to come and find out!

If you're thinking of attending Research Week this year, we can't recommend it enough. See a full schedule of events here: https://www.conftool.pro/research-week-2015/sessions.php. We hope to see you there!
