Calling all Young Neuroscience and SYNGAP Investigators!


The 1st day of the 2020 Virtual International SYNGAP1 Scientific Conference, is designed specifically to meet the interests and needs of Young/New Neuroscience Investigators! We have an amazing lineup of accomplished neuroscience/SynGAP research scientists and clinical/research experts scheduled to present on November 17, 2020, for our Young Investigators' Career Development Workshop.

In addition, we invite and encourage Young/New Investigators, interested in Neuroscience and/or SYNGAP Research, to submit an abstract/poster submission!  All Young Investigator Poster/Abstract submissions will be reviewed and scored by the Conference's Scientific Research Committee. Young Investigators, who submit a poster/abstract, will have an opportunity to pre-record and present their work. The top four poster/abstracts, based upon merit, are eligible to be present during a special session, to be held on the morning of November 19th.

Bridge the Gap’s International SYNGAP1 Conference provides a cutting-edge, scientific and educational
forum focused on bringing together a diverse group of SYNAP1 Community stakeholders.  SYNGAP1 Community stakeholders include - research scientists, clinical specialists, SYNGAP1 Families, industry, academic, governmentand community leaders.  

In addition, the conferences provide opportunities to bring  together scientists and clinicians actively involved in SYNGAP1 Research with trainees,young investigators, and underrepresented minorities, as well as, experts in the development of targeted therapies related to neurodevelopmental disorders.  Our goal is to increase participation of trainees,young investigators and underrepresented minorities in neurodevelopmental disorder research and to encourage the development of targeted therapies to treat SYNGAP1 and related neurodevelopmental disorders.

The conferences are designed to maximize scientific resources, encourage opportunities for collaboration and provide a forum that is inclusive for SYNGAP1 families and caregivers.  Each conference features a broad range of sessiontopics related to SYNGAP1 mutations, related neurodevelopmental disorders, published and unpublished research data and patient-centric study design. Time is allotted during each presentation for SYNGAP1 experts to lead discussions on current and future avenues of research.
