2nd T21RS International Conference 2017: Paving the way for Therapy

Chicago, 7-11 June 2017

After the succesful first edition of the bi-annual T21RS International Conference in 2015 in Paris (France), the second T21RS International Conference was held from June 7-11 in the beautiful city of Chicago (USA). 

The international Down syndrome research community gathered for the T21RS International Conference 2017 at the Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University in the heart of the city of Chicago. Presentations and posters franged from basic to clinical research, with one entire day dedicated to Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease, reflecting new research opportunities to serve both the trisomic and euploid populations. The T21RS Science & Society Symposium included family-oriented presentations on choosing to participate or not in clinical trials and establishing structures to integrate medical care and social support for the community.
