Dr. Oleh Taratula, Ph.D, is the 2016 recipient of the Richard T. Jones New Investigator Award from OHSU’s Medical Research Foundation. This award recognizes a new investigator who shows exceptional promise early in a career in biomedical research. Dr. Taratula was highlighted for his research in developing nanotechnology that allows him to exploit the molecular processes of cancer as they happen in real time.
