Investigator Support and Integration Services

The mission of the Investigator Support and Integration Services (ISIS) program is to facilitate clinical and translational research at OHSU and the Portland VA Medical Center.  ISIS works with these institutional partners to streamline study start-up and management processes and related administrative and compliance processes and provide pre-award and regulatory services to investigators. ISIS administers the Human Subjects Protection Program of the Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC) to maximize the protection of human subjects involved in OCTRI projects. The OHSU Clinical Trials Office, a unit within ISIS, provides study start-up services and negotiation of contracts for OHSU industry-sponsored clinical trials.
