Ranken Jordan—A Pediatric Specialty Hospital, is proud to be a community partner of Washington University’s new Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (WUIDDRC). Leading the center’s research is Terrie E. Inder, MD, PhD, director of the WUIDDRC and professor of pediatrics of radiology and neurology and a neonatal specialist at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Dr. Inder is widely considered a leader in the field of developmental pediatric disability.

The center, established with a five-year National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant estimated at nearly $6 million, will focus on research aimed at the prevention and treatment of developmental disabilities in children. WUIDDRC staff will place special emphasis on clinical and translational research. The center also will establish a community and family outreach program designed to provide resources and services.

Receiving treatment and therapy in a unique setting, the Ranken Jordan patient population offers researchers invaluable, in-depth access to the precise pediatric issues facing so many patients across the country.

Ranken Jordan’s proactive participation in Washington University’s WUIDDRC signals the beginning of an effective research collaboration that will help not only children with developmental disabilities, but their families and extended communities.
