We know what it means to have a person with Down syndrome in our lives, but what does it mean to have Down syndrome? Even though we’re aware of the definition — three copies of chromosome 21 instead of two — there’s a lot still to learn about why this “triplication” occurs.

What kind of therapies, medications or strategies may be on the horizon to help improve the lives of people with Down syndrome? Whether it’s cognitive delay or one of the many other conditions or diseases that our kids are prone to, what are the hopes for how research can help, and what can we as dads do to help?

Join D.A.D.S. and the Global Down Syndrome Foundation as we cut through the complexity of the science to show what’s going on in the world of Down syndrome research and how it can affect your family.

This informative webinar will feature two leading scientists from the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome:

Tom Blumenthal, Ph.D.
Executive Director

Huntington Potter, Ph.D.
Director of Alzheimer’s Research
