Learn About Our History & Meet Our Team
In September 2014, Monica Weldon, along with a small group of families, each with a child diagnosed with a SYNGAP1 mutation, came together to form Syngap1 Foundation – SYNGAP Education and Research Foundation; DBA SYNGAP1 Foundation.
United by their common bond, it drove their desire to raise awareness and search out treatments to improve the quality of life for their children.
