A webinar discussing the latest develops in SYNGAP1 and the need for a patient registry will be streamed this Wednesday, July 12 at 6:00 - 7:00 Eastern Standard Time (10:00 - 11:00 Universal Standard Time).
SYNGAP1 is a rare disorder that leads to intellectual disability, speech delay, hypotonia, and linked to a spectrum of epilepsies and autism. Very little is currently known about the condition other than the fact that it is linked to mutations on the SYNGAP1 gene.
The webinar will include a discussion by Jimmy Holder, M.D., Ph.D.,
neurologist and assistant professor at Baylor College of Medicine, and Monica Weldon, president and chief executive officer of Bridge the Gap – SYNGAP Educations and Research Foundation.
A patient registry
for SYNGAP1 is desperately needed in order to better understand the pathophysiology, symptoms, and progression of the disease. Understanding SYNGAP1 could also help us understand more common conditions such as autism and epilepsy, two conditions that are often present in SYNGAP1 children.
