Becoming an IDDRC Investigator


The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine supports the research of College investigators through the IDDRC Cores which concentrate expertise being accessible to investigators who would otherwise have to find ways to import these technologies and develop these skills in their own labs. The IDDRC is thus an impressive venue for facilitating research in a cost-efficient way.
