The mission of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development is to improve the quality of life of persons with disorders of thinking, learning, perception, communication, mood and emotion caused by disruption of typical development. The center is dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults with disabilities by pursuing scientific knowledge with creativity and purpose, disseminating information to scientists, practitioners, families, and community leaders, facilitating discovery by Vanderbilt Kennedy Center scientists and translating knowledge into practice. As one of fourteen nationally designated NIH research centers on mental retardation and other developmental disabilities, the center brings together scientists and practitioners in behavior, education, genetics and neuroscience to collaborate in solving the mysteries of development and learning.
