LuMind IDSC research priorities focus on medical conditions that disproportionately impact people with Down syndrome, such as Alzheimer’s disease and sleep apnea. In addition, we support research projects in areas leading to increased independence and cognition for people with Down syndrome, including gene therapies.
Our research takes many different forms: clinical trials, studies, surveys… there are many ways to participate!
We’re not in the business of changing people’s loved ones—instead, we hope to use the results of research to maximize the quality-of-life of each person with Down syndrome based on their individual needs. Participation from members of the community is crucial to helping us get the answers and solutions we all would like to see.
