Intellectual Developmental Disabilities Research Center

Genetics Core: 2018 Supported Studies and Investigators

 

The Genetics Core historically supports approximately 20 – 30 studies annually. However, support has been expanding in recent years as ever more powerful methods have become available, and this trend is predicted to continue. The following list contains a summary of current studies supported by the Genetics Core.
