An Unprecedented and Exciting Down Syndrome Research Discovery Engine – The Crnic Institute Human Trisome Project

This webinar will provide you important information, in layman’s terms, about the Crnic Institute Human Trisome Project – one of the most exciting Down syndrome research projects that aims to improve the health of children and adults with Down syndrome and millions of others who are affected by autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. Learn about new discoveries that recast Down syndrome as an immune system disorder and learn how self-advocates and local Down syndrome organizations can support this important effort.
