CRS Facilities: Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI)

On this page

Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland (CHRCO) consists of a free-standing non-profit children's hospital and its associated research institute, the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI). Participants in clinical research reflect the patient diversity at CHRCO in diagnostic category, socioeconomic status and ethnicity.

The CHORI site encompasses two units that provide outpatient facilities for both adult and pediatric research: Telegraph Avenue (close to Alta Bates Hospital) and the Outpatient Center on the main hospital campus, located in close proximity to the Day Hospital and to other outpatient clinics.

The CHORI site is supported by research nurses, nutritionist, clinical space to conduct research visits, sample processing laboratory, and body composition and exercise physiology, DEXA, ferritometer, and peripheral quantitative bone CT. Off-site nursing is also available.
