Welcome

The Joseph P. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) at the University of Chicago unites a community of scientists who are committed to brain, behavioral and developmental research and to the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with afflictions leading to mental retardation and developmental disabilities. As the only such Center in Illinois, it includes researchers from the University of Chicago, Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The IDDRC advances the quality, depth and translational relevance of Chicago-area research in a broad set of disciplines related to intelectual and developmental disabilities. It supports core facility infrastructure and trans-institutional interactions, such as seminars and symposia, as well as by publicizing the scientific achievements made by all members of the Center.
