This webinar will provide you important information, in layman’s terms, about the Crnic Institute Human Trisome Project – one of the most exciting Down syndrome research projects that aims to improve the health of children and adults with Down syndrome and millions of others who are affected by autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. Learn about new discoveries that recast Down syndrome as an immune system disorder and learn how self-advocates and local Down syndrome organizations can support this important effort.

He is also a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, the co-Leader of the Molecular Oncology program at the University of Colorado Cancer Center, and the founding Director of the Functional Genomics Facility at the University of Colorado.
