The Administrative Core is dedicated to:

  • Support faculty research into intellectual developmental disabilities through strategic core facilities and to develop new core services as fields advance.
  • Strengthen our multidisciplinary approach to intellectual developmental disabilities research by fostering interactions between center investigators and recruiting investigators from other fields into the field of intellectual developmental disabilities.
  • Facilitate scientific and collaborative interactions with investigators outside Baylor College of Medicine who have demonstrated a major commitment to study and treat intellectual developmental disabilities.

The Administration Core will continue to meet these objectives by wisely administering funds awarded to the IDDRC, maintaining a high-quality infrastructure to support the research projects, and spurring collaborations amongst investigators at Baylor as well with investigators at other institutions.
