Programmes conceptualised by the Foundation
Thanks to the generosity of its donators, the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation supports a number of research teams working towards a treatment for trisomy 21.
Fundamental research programme
This programme spans all the research phases aimed at decoding the mechanisms of these abnormalities. All relevant technical possibilities are used, from isolated cells to the entire animal.
Here are two examples of fundamental research programmes currently underway:
Clinical research programme
In coordination with the Jérôme Lejeune Institute, the Foundation monitors the data from the cohorts of patients afflicted with trisomy 21.
The power and quality of the Research work conducted by the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation reside in this close link with the patients treated by the Jérôme Lejeune Institute. This synergy between fundamental and clinical research is doubtlessly what will empower therapeutic progress in these genetic intelligence disorders.
