Mid-Atlantic Consortium Newsletter Summer 2013


The Mid-Atlantic Consortium is a collaborative association of the intellectual and developmental disabilities research centers (IDDRCs) at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Our three centers have contributed to thousands of research projects, many of which have made seminal contributions toward understanding the causes of developmental disabilities. In many instances, these have improved the treatment of affected children and adults, resulting in a better quality of life for patients and their families.
