CNRC Clinical Studies and Research Opportunities


Volunteers make it happen! Nearly 13,000 Houston-area families have volunteered to participate in CNRC studies, helping to improve the nutritional well-being of children worldwide.

Houston-area residents are invited to participate in the nutrition research projects designed to help our Children’s Nutrition Research Center scientists learn more about the nutritional needs of children.

Free parking is provided. For most studies, financial compensation is provided and transportation may be available. 

The CNRC is located at 1100 Bates Street in the Texas Medical Center, Houston, Texas. The center is on the south end of the Texas Medical Center, one block east of Fannin Street and one block north of Holcombe Boulevard. View the printable map with detailed directions.
