Children’s Hospital of San Antonio opens new research center
May 12, 2015

Children's Hospital of San Antonio opened a new clinical research center at its downtown campus Tuesday. The center will work closely with the hospital's academic partner, the Baylor College of Medicine.

The Max and Minnie Tomerlin Voelcker Clinical Research Center, located at the corner of North San Saba and West Martin streets, will expand the hospital's research efforts, Children's Hospital officials said. The hospital already is conducting 57 studies, half of them focused on cancer treatment and others dealing with cardiology, neonatology and culinary health education.

A grant of more than $500,000 funded the renovations and major equipment purchases for the research center, as well as the team of researchers working there.

"This is a tremendous opportunity to support and conduct innovative research that will one day lead to new treatments for the children of San Antonio and beyond," said Dr. Vivienne Marshall, who leads the team of researchers. "Expanded research initiatives help us find cures and better ways to care for children who are dealing with all kinds of clinical challenges, such as premature birth, diabetes and cancer."
