Bioma DS

DS Biome es una iniciativa de investigación comprometida con los ciudadanos, que reúne a un equipo de científicos y médicos de APC Microbiome Ireland y University College Cork. Varios investigadores involucrados en este proyecto tienen familiares con síndrome de Down y, por lo tanto, sienten especial pasión por el potencial de esta investigación. Nuestro centro se centrará exclusivamente en el estudio de la microbiota de las personas con Síndrome de Down; construido sobre una profunda participación ciudadana bidireccional.

Bioma DS

A number of researchers involved in this project have family members with Down Syndrome and are thereby especially passionate about the potential of this research. DS Biome will focus exclusively on studying the microbiota of persons with Down Syndrome.  This initiative was built on in-depth two-way citizen engagement, in that our collaborating partners are organisations that were either established by family members or are working on projects being led by professionals who have children with special needs .

Bioma DS

The research that we will carry out builds on experience that has been accumulated over more than 19 years that has established Cork as an epicentre of microbiome research. Three of the Principal Investigators that have contributed to this success, and were recently named yet again among the most highly cited researchers in the country, i.e., Professor Fergus Shanahan, Professor Paul O’Toole and Professor Paul Cotter, will lead the research component of DS Biome.
