A national nod to IDD Research

A national nod to IDD Research

The effort to better understand intellectual and developmental disabilities and improve the lives of individuals and families impacted by an IDD diagnosis is at the heart of a decades-long collaboration between scientists and clinicians at the University. This work culminated in the recent award from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) naming the University an Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC).

The Next Generation

The Next Generation

An introduction to a group of up-and-coming researchers who are on the frontlines of understanding Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). These efforts are bolstered by a large contingent of clinician researchers who serve patients and families with these disorders and are critical partners in efforts to advance care through research. The unique research setting of an academic medical center provides opportunities for collaboration that gives these researchers a platform to investigate new ways to understand these complex disorders.
