About the Event

Syngap1 is a protein that is critical for the development of cognition and proper synapse function. Mutations in the Syngap1 gene lead to a rare neurodevelopmental disorder. Currently, about 400 children are diagnosed world-wide with this disease. Mutations in Syngap1 are associated with intellectual disability and are proposed to play a significant role in other diseases such as epilepsy, autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenias.
