Science & Society

We strongly believe that scientific research will aid the understanding of Down syndrome. Every day, our members are working all around the globe in universities, academic hospitals, research institutes or health care centers to bring our ultimate goal a little closer: to unravel the details of Down syndrome with the final aim to better help people with Down, their families and caretakers.

We realize that scientific results are often difficult to grasp and that those English journals are unnecessarily complex to read. That is why the Committee for Science & Society has been established. Led by prof. dr. Peter Paul De Deyn (University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands; University of Antwerp, Belgium), this committee will work together with local Down syndrome associations and explain recent scientific findings on our website.
