The overall mission of our Society is to support research in the field of Down syndrome. One of our aims is to recruit new investigators for the expansion of knowledge in this field. the Education and Training committee led by Dr. Sandra Guidi (University of Bologna, Italy) would like to foster the careers of younger researchers. We believe that every help is essential, especially in the work of a young researcher, to achieve the goal of our society: to allow people with Down syndrome to live a better life.
What does young investigators say?
I offer myself a panorama to continue with my future professional plans within this same area of psychology, language and Down syndrome.
Not only the community was very welcoming to new members of the field, but also extremely collaborative, willing to share reagents and models to accelerate our research.
I am excited to begin a career in Down’s Syndrome research, and I feel that the opportunity to share the work I have done and meet with experts in the field will be an excellent platform to gain new insights.
