Our missions and actions

Harnessing the expertise and experience of each of the institutions that have gradually arisen and grown up around it, the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation today provides a platform of excellence supporting the key players in the optimised pursuance of its objectives: conducting research to eventually find a treatment for genetic intelligence disorders, caring for and supporting the patients afflicted by these illnesses, defending them by providing information, and awareness arousal, and, if necessary, by appealing to public opinion and the government.


France’s number one funder for research on Down syndrome (trisomy21), the Foundation has committed to therapeutically-oriented research, by first addressing factors that lead to mental retardation.


The Jérôme Lejeune institute’s primary mission is to treat the disease, handle related handicaps and coordinate all the different medical people involved in monitoring the patient.


Since the prenatal period has become one of the most precarious in life, the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation informs, trains, raises awareness and enlightens society about the dignity of life, its value and the stakes for the future human.
