SYNGAP1 is a major gene who’s clinical relevance can be as prevalent as the most common single gene mutations like Fragile X, Angelman, Rett and Phlean-McDermid Syndromes.
“Early prevalence data indicate that these mutations (de novo mutations that disrupt SYNGAP1) are unexpectedly common (predicted to be >1 million afflicted individuals world-wide and more prevalent than fragile X syndrome), underscoring the impact that SYNGAP1 has on cognitive development.” (Pathogenic SYNGAP1 Mutations Impair Cognitive Development by Disrupting Maturation of Dendritic Spine Synapses

WHO WE ARE
Bridge the Gap – Syngap ERF began in September of 2014. A group of parents of children living with SYNGAP1 mutations came together to begin a new journey. The common bond is one driven by a desire to raise awareness and search out treatments to improve quality of life for these inspiring individuals.
