It is also one of the largest employers in the state, and has launched hundreds of community programs to improve the health of state citizens. OHSU’s researchers have developed a pill that stops certain chronic cancers by flipping a molecular switch; helped invent the world’s first artificial heart valve; and found a way to develop stem cells from skin cells.
