University of Rochester Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (UR-IDDRC)

UR-IDDRC is committed to excellence in basic, translational, and clinical research, with a singular focus to advance science and improve lives. 

UR-IDDRC is one of 15 nationally recognized IDDRC’s funded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). It is built upon a rich history of providing first-rate clinical services to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and in driving new discoveries through research. With more than 100 investigators dedicated to IDD focused 200+ research projects, persons with IDDs are at the center of the inclusive neuro-diverse mission of the UR-IDDRC. 

Through a concerted effort across basic, translational and clinical investigators, we have set ourselves the clear goal of providing actionable clinical solutions for our IDD community. We will partner with our IDD community to communicate our work, and our passion, in a manner that is culturally competent, inclusive, and community centered.
