OHSU's Research Outcomes Consortium (ROC) Investigators were recognized by the American Heart Association for "major contributions to fundamental or clinical science related to cardiac arrest or traumatic injury" at the 2012 Resuscitation Science Symposium. The award was presented to Dana Zive on behalf of the OHSU ROC Investigators: Mohamud Daya, MD, Craig Newgard, MD, and Marty Schreiber, MD. ROC Investigators and staff presented research findings at the 2012 Resuscitation Science Symposium.

The Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) was created to learn which treatments work when people have a cardiac arrest or severe injury. The ROC consists of ten sites and a coordinating center. The ROC investigators work with Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems and local hospitals at each site to do these studies. Treatments studied include promising resuscitation drugs, tools and techniques.
