IDD Models Core

The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Models Core in the Waisman Center provides a number of resources to investigators within our center as well as to other campus investigators. First, the core provides mouse models of human conditions, along with behavioral testing capabilities to characterize these models and test new therapies. Second, we provide state-of-the-art stem cell technologies to support creation of induced pluripotent stem cell lines for  IDD conditions as well as specialized genome editing services. Finally, we provide high quality, cost effective, microscopy technology and expertise for characterization of both stem cell and mouse models of IDD conditions.
