There are a number of research teams currently worldwide who are investigating specific areas that contribute in part to the Down's syndrome condition. Dr. Elizabeth Fisher's team at the Institute of Neurology, University College London, has helped the work of these various teams. Dr. Fisher's team in 2005, were able to transfer the extra chromosome within Chromosome 21 found within humans into the mouse model. This will enable research teams to obtain assured and reliable findings from their research, more so than from the mouse chromosome. Professor Timothy Bliss of the Research Institute, Mill Hill, London will assist the applicant in his research to correctly illustrate the hippocampus through his yoke-like apparatus.
The Artist has met with Dr. Elizabeth Fisher at the Institute of Neurology, discussed her research and toured the research laboratories. Dr. Fisher's assistance to this project is ongoing.
At their meeting at the 'Bright Beginnings' conference, Institute of Child Health, London, 1 April 2006 organised by the Down's syndrome Research Foundation; Professor William Mobley discussed his research with the artist. Professor Mobley illustrated his research on the Hippocampus, by way of sketches drawn during this meeting.
