Down Syndrome Research Forum 2022

The Down Syndrome Research Forum 2022 will be held online on 10th and 11th March, 2022.

The Forum is hosted by Down Syndrome Education International with support from Dr Kelly Burgoyne (University of Manchester, UK) and Emily Croft (University of Manchester, UK).

The Down Syndrome Research Forum is a regular international event where researchers, students, practitioners, and families meet to discuss current research and practice, and learn from each other. This year we are continuing with an online format as it was so successful last year and reduces the need to travel. Presenters will be asked to present their work to attendees in live sessions delivered over video-call. All sessions will be recorded to enable participants who are unable to attend the live sessions to access content later.

Submissions for this year's Down Syndrome Research Forum have now closed. The schedule and abstracts can be found on the programme page.

We hope you will join us in March - the Forum grows each year and is a great place to make links. We hope the transition to an online conference will help further build our growing community.
