the Knight Cancer Institute


The OHSU Biolibrary provides information on campus collections of biospecimens originating from OHSU patients.


Biolibrary Search Engine

The Biolibrary Search Engine is a user-friendly, online search tool that allows OHSU researchers to search for suitable biospecimen samples. As of October 2010, the Biolibrary Search Engine contains data on over 500,000 biospecimens. The Search Engine accesses data from the OHSU Cancer Registry, the Department of Pathology, and the OCTRI Research Data Warehouse.

You must be connected to the OHSU network to access the Search Engine.
