Pediatric Cancer Biology Strategic Planning Retreat

We thank the leadership and key members of the OHSU Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, as well as our partners from the Doernbecher Children's Hospital Foundation for attending this Fall's first annual strategic planing retreat for the OHSU Pediatric Cancer Biology Program.  The retreat met yesterday at Skamania Lodge in the Columbia River Gorge.  The event was moderated by Dr. Cory Hallam, Director of Commercialization Alliances and Innovation as well as the Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) at the University of Texas at San Antonio.  It was a very productive day, with the only caveat that we were indoors nearly the entire time, whilst it was a beautiful day outside. Still, it was a tremendously valuable activity and will lead to a highly specific strategic plan to be generated in the coming weeks.
