Specimen Retrieval opportunity with Kaiser NW Biobank, meet with Kaiser Investigator deadline Oct. 23

The Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is now accepting proposals for Specimen Retrieval with the NW Biobank at Kaiser Permanente. With this announcement, we are inviting investigators to submit a proposal for specimen retrieval and use.

Meet with Kaiser Investigator deadline: October 23, 2014
Proposal deadline:
November 3, 2014
Eligibility: Principal investigators must fit OHSU eligibility requirements.

Grant applications often fail because investigators lack access to the needed biological samples or because the cost of acquiring samples is prohibitive. A researcher taking advantage of this opportunity could be in the position to submit a very compelling application. Similarly, researchers with existing programs of funded research could benefit significantly by augmenting their existing sample resources with a new collection.
