 2016 Down Syndrome Symposium

​The 5th annual Linda Crnic Institure for Down Syndrome Symposium will be held on Monday, October 24 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on the Anschutz Medical Campus, Hensel Phelps West Auditorim.



This year the symposium will begin with an introduction to the subject of Down syndrome by Dr. Tom Blumenthal, Executive Director of the Crnic Institute.  Our keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Ralph Nixon, from New York University. 

Last year the Linda Crnic Institute funded 11 research projects at the University of Colorado AMC, Boulder, and National Jewish Health.  The remainder of this year's symposium will consist of talks from some of the grant recipients and their lab members describing their projects and progress to date. We hope that this will serve to provide a broad overview of the sorts of proposals we are interested in supporting (also see our Grand Challenges). Finally, we will end with a description of this year's grants program, planned for 10 grants totaling one million dollars.
