About Us

LuMind RDS is a health-focused non-profit foundation that strives to enable independence and enrich community engagement for all individuals with Down syndrome. We work at the intersection of community and science to advance three key components of our mission:


  • Empowering families to learn, share, and connect
  • Catalyzing a clinical network that delivers transformational results
  • Identifying and accelerating high impact research


Science holds great promise for enhancing the lives of people with Down syndrome. Yet, few families are informed about the clinical trials that hold promise for improving their independence and health, and even for extending lifespan through preventing the early onset of Alzheimer’s in adults with Down syndrome. Through deep partnerships with researchers, families, industry and community agencies, we are uniquely suited to both inform families and mobilize financial and community support for the opportunities ahead.


LuMind RDS Foundation has already awarded more than $18 Million in grants to academic institutions and biopharmaceutical companies focused on Down syndrome. Concurrent funding of more than $50M from the biopharmaceutical industry, the National Institute of Health, and other organizations has amplified the impact of our grants and has already led to 15 clinical trials.
