The Centers for Collaborative Research in Fragile X and FMR1-related Conditions Program supports research to improve the diagnosis and treatment of Fragile X syndrome (FXS) and its related conditions. This program is administered through NICHD’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Branch (IDDB). The branch initially funded three centers in fiscal year 2003 in response to the Children’s Health Act of 2000. These Centers are geared toward stimulating multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research, with the common goal of facilitating the translation of basic research findings from bench to bedside and bedside to community.
