Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group
Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge
I joined the Cambridge Intellectual and developmental Disabilities Research Group as a research assistant for the Neurodegeneration in Aging Down’s Syndrome (NiAD) project in September 2021 and am now the study coordinator for the Alzheimer’s disease Biomarkers Consortium – Down’s Syndrome (ABC-DS) study, which has followed on from NiAD.
NiAD and ABC-DS are looking at the biological markers of Alzheimer’s disease in those with Down’s syndrome. I have a degree in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences from the University of Cambridge. During my time at university, I also worked part time as a support worker with Lifeworks, a charity that provides activities days to young people with learning disabilities in the school holidays.
