People with Down syndrome helped researchers discover breakthroughs in Alzheimer’s disease almost 40 years ago.

Now it’s time to bring the latest discoveries in the Alzheimer’s field to those with Down syndrome.

Introducing
TRC-DS

The Trial-Ready Cohort-Down Syndrome (TRC-DS) is a community of potential clinical trial volunteers who could help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

As many as eight in ten people with Down syndrome develop Alzheimer’s disease

There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why volunteers are needed to support new research into the connection between the two.

TRC-DS needs healthy adults with Down syndrome to advance therapies and potential cures

TRC-DS needs healthy adults between the ages of 35 and 55 with Down syndrome to volunteer and become part of a larger movement advancing Alzheimer’s disease therapies and potential cures for people with Down syndrome.

Volunteers are needed

Researchers want to bring the most promising treatments to people with Down syndrome, but volunteers are needed.
