It’s been a busy summer here in Cambridge for the Down’s syndrome research group. Almost 20 people have visited Liam and Tiina in Cambridge to have brain scans, and there are more on their way over the next couple of weeks! But we still need more people to come and help us, so please do get in touch if you’re interested.
It’s also been a busy summer for Kate, who has been setting up a new Down’s syndrome project. Kate wants to know why some people with Down’s syndrome find it difficult to do exercise. She thinks that people with Down’s syndrome might have problems with their mitochondria (click HERE to hear how this word sounds). These are like ‘little energy factories’ inside our cells which help us to make energy. Kate would like people with Down’s syndrome to help with her research by coming to Cambridge and doing some exercise. If you would like to know more about Kate’s study, you can click on HERE. I know she would love to hear from you!
Thanks for keeping up to date with our study, and there’ll be more news soon about how we’re getting on with our work to defeat dementia in Down’s syndrome!
