Biomedical Informatics Shared Resource

The mission of the Biomedical Informatics Shared Resource is to provide data collection and management support to research units and individual researchers at OHSU through every stage of the research process, from grant submissions and study planning to data collection and storage.

As of July 1, 2013 the Biomedical Informatics Core is closed.


The BMISR provides expertise in data collection and management to clinical researchers.  Through effective trial management and innovative data collection, clinical trial efficiency can be improved and high quality data collected for analysis. This automated data collection, storage and reporting reduce data errors and save time and effort during collection and analysis.

Consultation and services are available during every stage of the research process--from grant proposal writing through research data collection, management and analysis.  We can provide custom applications for data collection, management and dissemination using a broad array of technologies and tools.  We can help with standalone database applications (such as Access), using scannable paper forms, developing web applications, designing database applications, just to name a few.  Check out our Services page for more details.

The BMISR is directed by Michelle Hribar, Ph.D, in the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology. Contact us with any questions or project requests.
