Portland, Oregon

The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is happy to host this 2018 conference. Recently designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the NCI, the Knight Cancer Institute is a part of Oregon Health & Science University and is the only NCI-designated Cancer Center between Seattle and Sacramento. OHSU is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life for all Oregonians through excellence, innovation and leadership in health care, education and research.

Public support and private philanthropy – including a transformative $500 million matching gift from Nike Chairman Phil Knight and his wife Penny – have provided crucial resources to advance our progress. We were given two years to raise the $500 million match to the Knight’s generous gift – and we did it in record time, thanks to more than 10,000 donors from all around the world. We’re using that money to advance research in precision oncology, precision early detection, precision immuno-oncology, and the very best in patient care.

We hope you’ll join us this March and learn more about OHSU, The Knight Cancer Institute, and this wonderful place we call home – Portland, Oregon.

About

So, we have a reputation for Keeping Portland Weird, but that’s not a bad thing, is it?

The 2018 CCAF and CCAF-IT will give you an opportunity to experience Portland in all its wonderful glory. If you like outstanding food, outdoor activities, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and a rich culture, you’re going to love it here. And the forum will be rewarding, too!

Join us at the Portland Downtown Hilton on March 18-20, 2018, as we foster knowledge-sharing, networking and collaboration between NCI-designated cancer center administrators and IT professionals.

About
About

Hipsters. Everywhere.

James Beard was from Portland, if that says something about our food. Sometimes the best food here comes from a food truck.

Public transportation here includes bus, light rail, trolleys, and an aerial tram.

Our pinot noirs are world-class. Wine country here is amazing. So is our beer, our coffee — even our water.

We ride bikes here. A lot. Once a year, some of us ride them naked.

You can spot the tourists because they carry umbrellas.

Powell’s Bookstore defies description. You’ll see.

The International Rose Garden is here. Springtime smells like heaven.
