The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development is a Eunice Kennedy Shriver Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (EKS IDDRC), funded by the EKS National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (EKS NICHD). The NICHD-funded national IDDRC network advances the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and amelioration of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). VKC IDDRC investigators address autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, genetic syndromes, and acquired or general IDD. They use a broad range of methodologies including identifying basic mechanisms, treatment targets, and aberrant developmental processes in model systems; measuring cognitive, social, emotional, and neural phenotypes in IDD; and conducting treatment and intervention studies. Many IDDRC investigators study typical and atypical processes.
