One of the most important goals in the Trisomy 18 Foundation's strategic plan is:
To encourage, guide and fund additional research to advance knowledge of the syndrome and improve treatments for affected children and adults, and ultimately to develop a "cure" to prevent Trisomy 18 chromosomal errors in the earliest stages of pregnancies.
Another way of expressing the Research Mission is:
The Trisomy 18 Foundation is committed to facilitating research that will uncover the causes of Trisomy 18, develop effective biomedical treatments, and hasten the discovery of a cure.
We are committed to promoting research into all potential causes of Trisomy 18 and translating those findings into potential treatments for women in their child-bearing years to prevent Trisomy 18 at conception.
We are equally committed to promoting clinical research into potential treatments for those children diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at any stage of development to improve their quality of life and potential for growth and healthy development.
