The London Down Syndrome Consortium (LonDownS): an integrated study of cognition and risk for Alzheimer's Disease in Down Syndrome

Chief Investigator: Dr Andre Strydom, University College London

LonDownS

People with Down Syndrome often differ between one another in their cognitive abilities. Alzheimer’s Disease also occurs more often in individuals with Down Syndrome compared to other individuals. We are collecting data from a large number of individuals with Down Syndrome to investigate some of the reasons that help to explain these differences between individuals with Down Syndrome, and why some people with Down Syndrome develop Alzheimer’s Disease and others do not.
