Project Details

Description

Research in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities at the
University of Pennsylvania, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and The
children's Seashore House should greatly benefit from the facilities
proposed by the Mental Retardation Research Center. Funds are requested to
provide support to seven core units. These units include Administrative
Core: supports general management of Center Associates; Epidemiology and
Biostatistics Core: provides Center Associates with statistical
consultation for project design and data analysis; Genetics Core: provides
a centralized molecular biology facility, tissue culture and cytogenetic
karyotyping; Behavior Core: aids in the design and collection of behavioral
data in human and animal studies, engages in compliance training nd
performs cognitive neuropsychological testing; Neuroscience e: provides
synaptic neurochemical methods, neuronal cell culture facilities, and mass
spectrometry unit for stable isotope studies; Neuropathology Core: provides
light, electron microscopic, and cytoarchitectural capacity as well as a
brain registry; Neuroimaging Unit: provides quantitative analysis of MRI
scans, an MRS Facility, and PET scans and ligands for SPECT studies. These core units will provide services to 40 federally funded research
projects with funding of more than $3 million/year, $540,000 from NICHD.
total of 53 University faculty members will be affiliated with the MRRC s
Center Associates or Center Staff. These faculty represent 18 departments
from 5 major University divisions (The University School of Medicine,
Veterinary School, Wistar Institute, Children' Hospital and Children's
Seashore House). With the support of the proposed MRRC, we expect o enhance
research productivity in the area of mental retardation and developmental
disabilities at the University of Pennsylvania.
