 Invested for ages in the integration of disabled people, Arras pays a particular attention to questions concerning disability. For Jérôme Lejeune’s 20th anniversary, Arras is the first stop of the “Jérôme Lejeune, a discovery for life” exhibition, which will be pursued in several French towns. It will end in May 2015 in Paris (All the dates and places will be updated on the Foundation’s website).

A particular context: the 20th anniversary

From April 2014 to April 2015, the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation will be celebrating its 20 years of scientific and ethical challenges. Many events will be organized to commemorate both the death of Professor Jérôme Lejeune (April 3rd, 1994) and the creation of the Foundation (April 1995): exhibitions, conferences, debates, publications…
