About Us

The IDDRC at CHOP/Penn has been a leader in advancing IDD research for over 25 years. Novel concepts and technologies, many of them barely imaginable 25 years ago, today are a “routine” component in the vocabulary of medical research. Our Center wholeheartedly embraced these innovations, which we considered a boon toward realization of our mission: to discover the causes of IDD and use this knowledge to improve the outcome of affected people.
