New Perspectives for the Rescue of Cognitive Disability in Down Syndrome

Chair: Renata Bartesaghi, University of Bologna
Co-Chair: Diana Bianchi, MD, Tufts University School of Medicine

Down syndrome is a relatively high-incidence genetic condition caused by the triplication of human chromosome 21. No therapies currently exist for the rescue of cognitive impairment in Down syndrome. This minisymposium will present exciting findings showing that it is possible to restore brain development and cognitive performance in mouse models of Down syndrome with therapies usable in humans. This knowledge provides a breakthrough for the cure and prevention of intellectual disability in Down syndrome.
