IDDRC Services and Pilot Support

By Erin F. Jones, BA, manager of research operations for Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Neuropsychology Department

The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) at Kennedy Krieger Institute supports any investigator conducting research on intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) at the Institute, regardless of independent funding status. A range of specialized services, including one-time consultation and navigation services, are available through the IDDRC’s Cores:

Through a collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), the IDDRC is also able to provide funding for pilot studies involving human subjects research. The funding is reserved for pilot experiments involving human subjects studies in the Neuroimaging, Clinical Translational, and Behavioral Phenotyping Cores.

In November 2023, the IDDRC announced support of 10 new and returning pilot investigations. Notably, this cycle of pilot funding marks the final one under the current iteration funded by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR). The pilot support program is anticipated to relaunch with a new funding source in the fall of 2024.
