Daniel A. Doherty, M.D., Ph.D.

The Genetics Core aims to help IDDRC Research Affiliates integrate state-of-the-art genomic methods into their existing research programs. Recently, new DNA sequencing technologies have facilitated major breakthroughs in our understanding of the genetic basis of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Research Affiliates in our IDDRC now actively employ advanced genomic technologies to identify novel genetic associatiations with IDD syndromes. In recognition of this increased interest as well as the exciting potential for translational benefit from enhanced gene discovery, our IDDRC, with NICHD approval and funding provided by UW, established a Human Genomics Component (HGC) to complement our Functional Genomics Component (FGC) to ensure that IDDRC affiliates can optimally employ advanced technologies toward new genetic variant identification in IDD cohorts.
