Objectives of the OHSU Cancer Biology Postdocs Group

• Get post-docs to meet each other • Make it easier to share expertise and reagents • Help post-docs get feedback from their scientific peers • Provide resources for career development

The association comprises postdoctoral researcher at OHSU who are interested in cancer biology. Our goal is to enhance the post-doctoral experience by building a supportive community of scientific peers, offering a lab-independent forum for critical and constructive scientific feedback, and providing resources for post-doc career development. In addition, we will serve as an organized base of advocacy for post-doctoral issues at OHSU.
