Intellectual and Developmental Disability Research Center (CHOP/Penn)

Director: Robinson, Michael., PhD


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.
Our Mission
Our mission is to enable research that enhances understanding of:
The causes of intellectual and developmental disabilities;
The impact of these tragic disorders on the affected child and his or her family; and
The translation of this knowledge into treatments that alleviate suffering and maximize individual potential
Our Goals
In order to fulfill our ambitious mission, our Center has set forth the following goals:
-- Research
-- Training
-- Advocacy
-- Networking
