The mission of the Fritz Wenzel Center for Clinical Research is to support basic and translational biomedical research to improve human health by continually advancing disease knowledge and increasing the availability of new therapies.

About Us

Founded in 1959, the Center provides comprehensive services to ensure efficient, high-quality clinical trials of drugs, devices, and biotechnology conducted at Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield and throughout many of the Health System’s regional centers. The Center guides studies from grant development through publication, whether industry-sponsored, federally-funded, or investigator-initiated.

Home to the Clinical Registry Investigating Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (CRIBBS), the largest worldwide registry examining the long-term health of individuals with Bardet-Biedl syndrome. CRIBBS has over 750 participants spread across six of the seven continents, from 40 countries and counting. 

Research Areas

While the Center has special emphasis in cardiology, infectious disease, neurology, pediatrics, vaccinology and rare diseases, physicians and staff throughout the Health System are able to engage in any research specialty. The common thread throughout these diverse areas is that the Center prides itself on delivering research services with utmost integrity.
