University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities


Welcome to the Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) website. The Institute is located in Omaha, Nebraska on the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) campus. MMI is a federally designated University Center of Excellence for Developmental Disabilities Education, Research and Service (UCEDD). MMI specializes in providing services and support for persons with genetic disorders and developmental disabilities. Our education, research, training, and clinical service programs are provided in an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment. Since becoming part of UNMC in 1968, the Munroe-Meyer Institute has provided statewide services to individuals with developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and special healthcare needs. MMI provides state of the art genetic and molecular genetics laboratory services. MMI also supports individuals and families in finding services in their local communities. MMI provides comprehensive medical and health care services through interdisciplinary clinics and evaluations, or single discipline assessments and treatment. The interdisciplinary team approach used at MMI assures a family-centered, comprehensive diagnostic, and treatment program, specific to the client's needs. Parents, teachers, therapists, and community service providers are welcome team members in the provision of services. This collaboration with MMI professionals helps ensure better coordination of services. Services are provided within MMI, at UNMC, in outreach clinics in the Omaha area, and throughout Nebraska. An individual can be referred to MMI by a physician or other health care professional, a school district, a social service agency, or a family member. Most of our services are covered by Medicaid, Medicare and other insurance programs.
