Of the many genetic conditions known to affect humans, Down Syndrome is perhaps the most recognisable. Prof Dr Thong Meow Keong was a member of an international team that published a study on Down Syndrome in diverse populations. He joins us to explain the scope of the study, the importance of genetic counselling, and whether it’s worth it to undergo prenatal genetic screening.
