Learn about the Pediatric CRC’s resources available to investigators



The Children’s Hospital Doctor’s Office Tower (DOT) provides more than 800,000 square feet of pediatric facilities. The DOT houses the  Pediatric Clinical Research Center in space generously donated by John Lee Jr. and now available exclusively for pediatric clinical research (see photograph). The facility allows easy access and parking, a separate waiting area accessible from the main elevator of the Children’s Hospital, a small check-in area, four outpatient exam rooms, two exam rooms with two-way mirrors for behavioral research, areas for specimen processing and sample storage convenient for both inpatient and outpatient sample processing, table-top centrifuges, a refrigerator and -20°C freezer, computer workstations for use by investigators and other research staff, an administrative office, a large conference room, and storage areas for supplies.

This facility also provides close proximity to ancillary pediatric services such as radiology, Child Life services, IV team, respiratory therapy, and pediatric occupational and physical therapy. Further, the Children’s Hospital incorporates a child-friendly environment with designated areas for play and interaction with other children.
