Joint PhD Program Focused on Translation
An innovative joint PhD training program leverages the combined strengths at the University of Oregon Knight Campus and Oregon State University.
The Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact officially opened its doors virtually on December 2, 2020. The online event introduced participants to the driving mission and goals of the Knight Campus. The celebration concluded with six discussions exploring the various impacts of the Knight Campus.
The first cohort of bioengineering doctoral students launched their Knight Campus graduate training during IMPACT Week. Students sharpened their communications skills, partnering with UO’s Center for Science Communication Research, and spent a day on innovation training, with a focus on translating their science to the market. The group also had a chance to tour the new facilities, network with faculty, and strengthen their cohort connections.
