Donation spearheads annual Portland cancer research summit
Date:5/19/2014

PORTLAND, Ore. Prominent cancer researchers from throughout the country will be invited to gather at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) yearly beginning in 2016 to expand upon the Knight Cancer Institute's vision for transforming cancer treatment through early detection, thanks to a $1 million gift from the Gordon Sondland and Katherine Durant Foundation (Sondland-Durant Foundation).

The first annual Sondland-Durant Distinguished Research Conference will be held in 2016 in Portland, Ore., and will offer a highly visible opportunity for Knight Cancer Institute leaders and their peers to share breakthrough research and explore new ideas for scientific collaboration.

"No one person and no one institution will solve the problem of cancer alone. This generous gift from the Sondland-Durant Foundation provides an opportunity for the world's top minds to gather and share insights. I am confident that by working together we will accelerate our ability to make a difference for patients in our lifetime," said OHSU Knight Cancer Institute Director Brian Druker, M.D.

Gordon Sondland is a member of the OHSU Foundation Board of Trustees, and chairman and chief executive officer of Provenance Hotels. His wife, Katherine Durant, is the co-founder of Atlas Investments and serves as vice chair of the Oregon Investment Council. Sondland and Durant created their foundation in 1999 and are longtime donors to OHSU. In 2011, the couple established an emergency fund to cover unexpected patient needs such as dietary requirements or transportation for family members.
