Our mission

Molecular Genomic approaches to intellectual and developmental disabilities have become increasingly important in understanding the underlying basis of these disabilities and how one might approach therapy. The techniques, instrumentation and interpretation of genomic information have become increasingly complex, necessitating a broad range of expertise normally outside the capabilities of a single laboratory. Supported by the Boston Children's Hospital Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center grant, the IDDRC Molecular Genetics Core laboratory has centralized these capabilities into one convenient location that offers these genomic services to IDDRC investigators at Boston Children's Hospital at a reduced rate. These services are offered at both the start and end of an investigators study in a user-friendly
manner, with an emphasis on timeliness, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
