Dr. Roger Reeves, 2012 Sisley-Jérôme Lejeune Prize Winner, Significantly Advances Understanding of the Biology of Down Syndrome Leading to New Avenues of Research
Date:9/12/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

The Jérôme Lejeune Foundation welcomes the results obtained by Professor Roger Reeves, recipient of the 2012 Sisley-Jérôme Lejeune Prize, recently published in the journal, Science Translational Medicine (Sept.4, 2013). This work marks another significant development in understanding intellectual disability, particularly Down syndrome, and pathways to the development of potential therapies to improve the lives of those affected by them. The Jérôme Lejeune Foundation continues its mission of supporting research into genetic intellectual disability, encouraged by the rapid pace of progress made by researchers in recent months.

In receiving the Sisley -Jérôme Lejeune award last November at the Museum of Medicine in Paris, Dr. Reeves announced to those present that his contributions were not completed, and that the best was yet to come. With his research team at Johns Hopkins University, and in partnership with researchers at the National Institutes of Health, he has announced the identification of a substance capable of normalizing the development of the cerebellum in a mouse model of Down syndrome with just a single injection. The result is improved memory and learning.
