OCTRI Mission

To enhance the efficiency and quality of rigorously translating research ideas into impact.

A catalyst for your translational research

We are the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute. You’ll come to know us as OCTRI, pronounced “oak tree” (\ ˈōk - trē \). If you’re an investigator, regional partner or member of a study team, we’re here to support you in the critical stages of clinical and translational research.

No matter where you are in the process, we can help you remove barriers, apply best practices and translate biomedical advances into treatments.

Our teams are looking forward to serving the OHSU research community and our partners for another five years!
