Oslo-CCHR-Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research group with research nurses, a research coordinator, biomedical laboratory scientists and molecular biologists employed as permanent staff. Clinicians and researchers in temporary positions at MD, MSc, PhD and postdoc level are at all times also members or associated members of our group. We have several rooms dedicated to seeing patients and are centrally located within the Department of Cardiology. A central part of our activity is biobanking with standardized procedures for sample collection, processing and storage. We have a well-equipped, in-house laboratory for molecular analyses of biomaterial from patients, and our experienced staff perform translational research of high quality.

CCHR was established in 1991, based on clinical trials accompanied by laboratory-related substudies on mechanisms within the field of atherothrombotic cardiovascular disease.
