To decipher how trisomy 21 causes a different disease spectrum, we launched The Human Trisome Project in 2016. This project is a massive, multidisciplinary effort to characterize individuals with and without Down syndrome at an unprecedented detail at the clinical, physiological, cellular and molecular levels.
Our research takes place at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the University of Colorado Boulder. With a total of thirty-three research teams funded by the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome, the University of Colorado hosts the largest geographical cluster of Down syndrome researchers in the world. These teams bring invaluable expertise to The Human Trisome Project. As a team, our research will help understand the variety of health problems that can affect an individual with Down syndrome.
