The Cambridge Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Research Group at the University of Cambridge, established with a grant from The Health Foundation, is part of the Section of Developmental Psychiatry in the Academic Department of Psychiatry. In partnership with colleagues, we are also leading one of the clinical research themes (Enduring Disability and/or Disadvantage) in one of the NIHR's CLAHRCs (Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care). The new CLAHRC, which is a renewal of the previous CLAHRC for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, has been expanded across the six counties of the Eastern region with additional academic partners at the Universities of East Anglia and Hertfordshire, and is referred to as the NIHR CLAHRC East of England.
This website describes us and our work, presents our research and publications, and sets out our aims and objectives. Learn more about us.
