Designing a Study

Designing a study? Need statistical support or consultation with one of OCTRI's experts? Submitting a grant proposal that includes OCTRI resources? OCTRI provides the following support and resources for researchers who are designing a study.

Design Studio

Design Studios are set up to maximize the success of OHSU's early-career investigators by giving them feedback as they prepare grant proposals.  OCTRI invites members of the senior OHSU research community plus interested partners to listen to a short presentation, ask questions, and provide feedback. See dates and learn more here.

OCTRI Clinical Research Development Team (CRDT)

The Clinical Research Development Team is available to meet with investigators to discuss projects that are in development, ready to implement or are experiencing difficulties and need assistance in identifying strategies to overcome barriers. This meeting involves experience clinical research staff and faculty and can help investigators identify operational best practices, find tools and connections that may help in streamlining their project and provide overall advice to help guide the project.

If the project meets certain criteria and would benefit from national CTSA resources the Clinical Research Development Team may also connect OHSU investigators with the Trial Innovation Network. For more information and to talk about scheduling a meeting with the Clinical Research Development Team contact the Clinical Research Navigator Manager at (503) 346-3540.
