Down Syndrome Research

Down Syndrome Australia is keen to facilitate and support research that aims to improve the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families. Whilst DSA is prepared to act as an agent to request of the Federation members (the eight state and territories), for access to their membership, all projects by researchers for recruitment of research participants or distribution of research related surveys must be approved by our research committee.

The research committee can approve projects that meet the criteria. An application fee is charged to seek approval, and a further administration fee is charged for accepted projects to cover the recruitement costs. Please email us for pricing.
