LuMind RDS Educational Webinar Series

Researchers Share The Methodology and Progress of Down Syndrome Research

We are excited to offer access to the recordings of our ongoing educational series of webinars — web-based audio and slide presentations — led by the principal investigators of the exciting research for Down syndrome. We believe these sessions offer unprecedented access to the scientists who are actively advancing the field, and we are honored and pleased to be able to offer their perspectives on a regular basis.

We encourage you to share these educational opportunities with other families of loved ones with Down syndrome in your community. Contact us and reference the webinar title in your subject line if you have any additional questions about the research after watching the recording.
