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.
Innovation through partnership
OCTRI headquarters for multi-institution National Center for Data to Health
Since 2017, OCTRI has been a key partner in establishing and leading the multi-institution Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program, the National Center for Data to Health (CD2H).
The CD2H accelerates advancements in informatics by promoting data reuse and interoperability, tool sharing, informatics fluency, and collaboration across the entire CTSA network.
Resources for Coronavirus
