Welcome to the website of the London Down Syndrome Consortium. This website has been designed to incorporate information for participants, carers/parents and researchers interested in research into Down syndrome and dementia.
LonDownS in the news
LonDownS has developed a new informant questionnaire about cognitive abilities in Down syndrome: the Cognitive Scale for Down Syndrome (CS-DS). You can access the paper and download a PDF of the CSDS by clicking on these hyperlinks.
The LonDownS study, looking at dementia in people with Down syndrome and led by Dr André Strydom, has made the local press in Berkshire.
Berkshire Healthcare NHS Trust is taking part in the LonDownS study for over a year now and has recruited and assessed several people using the LonDownS battery of assessments.

In this Crick Chat, held on 24 November 2015 in a pub in King's Cross, LonDownS members Dr Victor Tybulewicz from the Francis Crick Institute and Professor Elizabeth Fisher and Dr Andre Strydom from UCL, discuss how their collaborative research is shedding light on the link between Down syndrome and Alzheimer disease.
