The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) at Kennedy Krieger Institute and The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine supports research to help children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disorders and injuries achieve their potential and participate as fully as possible in family, school, work, and community life. The Center has been central to a scientific enterprise involving hundreds of investigators working to understand and address the problems of developmental disabilities. Since 1987, the IDDRC has been the nucleus of a larger program of research supported through the Hugo Moser Research Institute established within Kennedy Krieger Institute, in collaboration with affiliated programs throughout The Johns Hopkins University's academic community. The strengths of this community provide enormous opportunities for translational research relevant to developmental disorders, with internationally recognized expertise and infrastructure well-suited to the task of moving knowledge along the continuum from "bench-to-community."
