Discovery and Innovation in Oregon’s Bold New Constellation of Research Labs

The stated mission of University of Oregon’s Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact is straightforward and powerful: Science advancing society. At this event, we’ll visit with Knight Campus leaders and researchers who are developing a hub where innovative research and discovery are thriving, plus learn about exciting plans for future expansion. After the program, network with your bio-colleagues on the terrace, or join a tour of the Knight Campus.
