OHSU On Track To Get $200M Cancer Request

PORTLAND, OR -- State lawmakers moved late Thursday to give Oregon Health & Science University all of the $200 million it requested for cancer research facilities.  The OHSU money was included in six budget bills approved in the Ways and Means Committee.  The House and Senate are scheduled to take the bills up, along with a few other last-minute measures, on Friday.
OHSU would get just over $200 million to pay for new research and clinic space in Portland.  The money will help the university meet a challenge from Nike co-founder Phil Knight, who says he'll donate $500 million if the school can get an equal amount elsewhere.
