Welcome to the website of the London Down Syndrome Consortium. We are  a large, multidisciplinary group of clinicians, human geneticists, developmental psychologists, mouse geneticists, psychiatrists and cellular scientists working towards understanding dementia in people with Down syndrome. To find out more about who we are and what we do, see the pages about us.

This website has been designed to provide information for participants and carers / family members about our research and for researchers interested in our work and Down syndrome and dementia.


World Down Syndrome Day 2017

World Down Syndrome Day 2017 is fast approaching us and LonDownS is planning an event for everyone involved in our research project. We are currently finalising details of our plans but we will be hosting some events in Central London for participants, carers and family members and later in the day we'll be giving a few talks  about Down syndrome research. Further details will be announced on this website.

If you have any comments or suggestions of what you would like to see or find out about our work, Tweet us @LonDownS or e-mail us at
