Child Health Research Center

At the Child Health Research Center, we support scientists engaged in basic and clinical research for the purpose of discovering innovative therapies for childhood diseases.

We bridge the gap between the laboratory and the bedside with cutting-edge research that improves the lives of children.

The mission of the center is to foster cutting edge research that improves the lives of children. The Center will comprise research administration, support, laboratory and core facilities in the MR-4 research building, as well as clinical research facilities in the new Battle Building. We expect that the Center will continue to grow and develop with the addition of investigators and support over the coming years.

 

Increase STEM Engagement in URM/POC Communities at the Elementary School Level

Please help us raise funds for this project, our goal is $30,000 which will cover supplies for children from all SIX Cville City Schools for the ENTIRE year!
