New research volunteer registry: Volunteer information and biorepository

The Clinical and Translational Research Center now offers OHSU investigators access to a Research Volunteer Registry of subjects interested in participating in research projects. The registry also includes a biorepository with serum, plasma, urine, and saliva from healthy subjects. These biological samples are immediately available as control samples. You can access the volunteer names, contact information, and biological samples in this registry more quickly and less expensively than using traditional recruitment methods. The CTRC has obtained … Read More

New scientific review requirement for some clinical research studies

Concerns have been raised that some human subject scientific protocols that do not receive external peer review have limitations that slow their progress through the IRB.  As the IRB is charged with protecting human subjects, rather than as a scientific review committee, this lack of review slows the process and adds work for researchers and regulators alike.  And this problem is not just local, but nationwide.  In response to several recent examples here at OHSU, … Read More
