The University of Washington Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC), based at the Center on Human Development and Disability (CHDD), provides a comprehensive interdisciplinary research program in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities and related aspects of human development. Basic and translational research is carried out at all levels of analysis:

  1. Developmental and Molecular Genetics
  2. Developmental Neuroscience
  3. Developmental Processes and Behavioral Science

Interdisciplinary collaborations emphasize translational research goals, are cross disciplinary  and are carried out in connection with Collaborative Research Areas:

One administrative core, including the Behavioral Evaluation Center, four other scientific core facilities, and a major research project enhance the effectiveness of scientists carrying out their research as part of the IDDRC. Other IDDRC objectives include training researchers in various disciplines, disseminating research findings, and maintaining linkages to critical training activities and exemplary service programs.
