Jerome Lejeune : To the least of these my brothers & sisters


Physician, genetics researcher, Jerome Lejeune acquired an international reputation when he discovered Trisomy 21, the cause of Down Syndrome, in 1958.
In 1969, the meteoric rise of this young french scientist will be be stopped in a flash.
While receiving the highest award in genetics, he delivered a speech defending the human dignity of the embryo, causing an earthquake in the scientific sphere.

Who was Jerome Lejeune ? A giant of science or religious zealot ? Today, what is the sate of research on Trisomy 21, in which he had placed so much hope?

20 years after his death, from Paris to Indianapolis, from friends to confreres, supporters to detractors, ‘Jerome Lejeune – To the least of these my brothers & sisters’ is investigating the man of science and beliefs.
