Study into Down syndrome


Registered User
Sep 23, 2013
Dear all,

We are researchers from University College London (UCL). We are looking for people with Down syndrome to take part in our study. The study is looking at the link between Down syndrome and dementia.

We would like to see people of all abilities that have Down syndrome and are aged over 16 (including people that have been diagnosed with dementia). The research involves playing games and providing a saliva sample (this is so we can look at people’s genes). The session will take around 3 hours and we can visit people in their own home or reimburse travel expenses to central London.


For more information please contact downsyndrome@ucl.ac.uk

Thank you very much,
Carla, Sarah and Ros
