I was originally drawn to Syngap Research Fund after coming across their mantra: Collaboration. Transparency. Urgency. I knew that it was intentional and that the organization was true to their mission of accelerating the path to therapeutics for patients suffering from Syngap1. SRF has funded ~$1M in research to-date, and their founders cover all overheads, so 100% of all donations go directly to science. This team is really making a difference!
