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.

OHSU Physician-Scientist Metrics Program

Nearly 5 years ago, OCTRI began tracking the physician-scientist community at OHSU. Our goal was to develop a data dashboard that could be used for strategic planning at OHSU.

National COVID Cohort Collaborative data enclave accessible now!

Logo for the National COVID Cohort Collaborative.

The NIH launched a centralized, secure enclave to store and study vast amounts of medical record data from people diagnosed with coronavirus disease. It is part of an effort, called the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C), to help scientists analyze these data to understand the disease and develop treatments. The N3C harnesses the extensive resources of the NCATS-funded Clinical and Translational Sciences Awards Program and its Center for Data to Health.

Access the data enclave for your research.
