The Down Syndrome Research and Treatment Foundation is dedicated to developing and supporting innovative research to expedite the discovery and development of treatments for cognitive impairment in individuals with Down syndrome.   Research programs that have substantial promise to advance the field of Down syndrome cognition including research exploring mechanisms of cognitive impairment, identification and validation of potential new therapeutic targets, and resolving roadblocks throughout the pipeline for development of new and effective therapeutic approaches are of special interest to the Foundation.

Currently, research and funding opportunities are considered by the Foundation on an ongoing basis.  DSRTF recommends that interested research investigators submit a one-to-two page outline and summary for potential research proposals, which would include preliminary timeline and budget estimates and requirements.  After preliminary evaluation by the Foundation, DSRTF may request preparation and submission of a formal research grant proposal by the investigator, which will be peer-reviewed by the DSRTF Scientific Advisory Board.

All DSRTF research grants are governed by DSRTF’s Research Grants Program Policies and Procedures, which is available for review upon request.  For more information please contact us at, or 650-468-1668.
