The IDDRC at CHOP/Penn has been a leader in advancing IDD research for over 29 years. Novel concepts and technologies, many of them barely imaginable 29 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.
In order to fulfill our ambitious mission, our Center has set forth the following goals:
The IDDRC will support a research project as well as state-of-the-art core research facilities.Learn More
The IDDRC will support the recruitment and training of young investigators who embrace IDD-related research as a career mission.Learn More
The IDDRC will continue as the primary CHOP/Penn agency for the promotion of IDD-Related Research.Learn More
