T21RS Science & Society Bulletin

The T21RS Committee for Science & Society regularly addresses issues raised by parents and Down syndrome associations through summarizing the state-of-the-art knowledge from a scientific perspective. The Committee works together with leading scientists and clinicians (T21RS members) and is strongly committed to introducing scientific research and explaining recent findings in an understandable way through their T21RS Science & Society Bulletins. T21RS members are kindly invited to submit a T21RS Science & Society Bulletin to the Committee for publication on the T21RS website. The Committee intends to publish a Bulletin several times per year.
