"Banking On Breakthroughs"
Every person with Down syndrome is born with a superpower.
Their unique genetic makeup results in an extra copy of chromosome 21. This provides them an opportunity to do things the rest of us simply cannot.
That extra chromosome is their superpower. And with it, they are helping researchers develop treatments and therapies that will eliminate common ailments affecting people with Down syndrome.
Through the DSA Biobank, we are helping researchers improve the health and well-being of those with Down syndrome by decoding links to those common ailments that affect us all.
Breakthroughs begin with you.
Here's how you can help.
If you have a family member with Down syndrome, you can help advance research by donating a blood sample to the DSA Biobank.. Learn more here.
