Biolibrary Search Engine

The Biolibrary Search Engine is a user-friendly, online search tool that allows OHSU researchers to search for suitable biospecimen samples without having to know (or reveal) protected patient information.

OHSU researchers do not have to have IRB approval to access the Search Engine. OHSU researchers are required to have completed HIPAA and Responsible Conduct of Research training (two modules: 'For All Researchers' and 'Involving Human Subjects') in order to utilize the search capability.

  • The Search Engine is available from computers that are on the OHSU network or connected to the network through VPN or WTS.
