Intellectual disability constitutes the main disability of people living with genetic intelligence diseases.

That is why the research for a treatment aiming at decreasing this intellectual disability is one of the major objectives of the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation and Institute. As soon as they were created, they initiated an international dynamic within their various teams, of which the current progress and ambition confirm the “original” idea of Pr. Jérôme Lejeune; that of therapeutic hope.

Speaking of which, since 2010 the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation has been attributing two types of awards. The “Sisley-Jérôme Lejeune” scientific award and the “Young Jérôme Lejeune researchers” award, which aim at promoting therapeutic research on genetic intellectual disabilities, and encouraging young scientists to work precisely in this field of research.
