Please Support DS Research  

The potential for developing a better understanding of the causes and treatments for Down syndrome is at a critical time in history.

Genetics and molecular biology have made great strides over the past five years. Much of chromosome 21 implicated in Down syndrome has been identified, but not understood.

The amount of scientific research into Down syndrome has not been keeping up with the opportunities that genetic technologies have made available. Significant progress can be made toward medical interventions for Down syndrome, by turning genetic research into clinical solutions.

Your help is critically needed to help increase the total amount of research for Down syndrome.

How you can help:

Support Down Syndrome Research directly by making a donation to the DS Research & Treatment Foundation or through the National Down Syndrome Society.

Please contact your elected officials and ask them to increase funding for Down Syndrome research in the budget of the National Institutes of Health.
