Down Syndrome Research

Bills have been introduced in both the Senate and the House that would provide an additional $6 million to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for increased research into Down Syndrome.  NIH would be required to create six centers of excellence for Down Syndrome research and maintain a research plan.  The Senate bills (S 1840 and S 1841) have been introduced by Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Susan Collins (R-ME).  In the House, Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) introduced similar bills (HR 2695 and HR 2696) last summer.
