About Bridge the Gap - SYNGAP Education and Research Foundation:
Our mission is to serve, educate and fund research for families coping with the effects of SYNGAP mutations. Our organization 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. Our desired impact is to raise awareness of SYNGAP1 (MRD5), unite patient families while building a robust patient data registry and providing meaningful information to researchers. Second, our goal is to create a standard of care and SYNGAP1 disease profile. This will educate researchers and medical professionals in hopes of improving time to early diagnosis. It is crucial that an early diagnosis is made as we have seen that early therapy can be incredibly valuable to the
development of our special children. Lastly, we aim to educate families and clinicians with data collected from our Natural History study to create customized treatment plans that can result in the best outcomes for progress made by each child. With guidance from our scientific advisory board it is also our goal to shape our programs that will benefit and accelerate the science to treatments for SYNGAP1.

We hope to see you there and thank you for supporting SYNGAP1 Families from all over the World!
