    Why the Bowie grant is so exciting!  Our second collaborative grant! #s10e69

    Why the Bowie grant is so exciting!  Our second collaborative grant! #s10e69

    First grant: You can learn more about the Courtney grant in episode 66? #s10e66  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eVw6Oc_V_Y (Like these and subscribe to our YouTube channel).

    Second grant: Here is the press release and social media on the Bowie grant.
     - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cureSYNGAP1/posts/356581543313514 
     - Twitter:  https://twitter.com/curesyngap1/status/1552642957546700800
     - LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6958432905563955200 
     - Press Release: https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/960181 

        1. We have LOTS of requests for support, many are good. So you should join us in supporting this one.
        2. This is exciting - Quality and Focused - We said yes.

    The Bowie Grant story.  Excellent and committed to SYNGAP1.  Can’t help but like the guy.

    Key words from press release:
    Prof. Bowie believes that by correcting targets downstream of these synapses, a specific combination therapy can result in a common improvement of the ID phenotype. This grant will support his lab in investigating the efficacy of this therapy via SYNGAP1 mouse models…to test our idea of using a small molecule approach to target the molecular pathways giving rise to intellectual disability. I am excited to see what new insights this research will uncover.

        3. Global Collaboration - Overcome and Campdraft/SRF-Australia

    Tax deductible Donations in TWO Countries for this grant:
        - US syngap.fund/bowie
        - CANADA syngap.fund/overcome

        4. Reminder: Infrastructure is huge and it’s here for you.

    Don’t take for granted the work that is required to give you opportunities to fund.  Diligence, Grants to leading researchers, Webpages, Tax receipts, funds flowing directly to well governed organizations.  It’s here for you, fund the work!

    - Invitae Announcement

    - Sign up for Ciitizen: https://syngap.fund/ciitizen 

    - CMO email: “While the announcement focused  primarily on our operations and product portfolio, I wanted to take this opportunity to reinforce that Invitae remains unwavering in its commitment to patients. Cultivating strong relationships with Patient Advocacy Groups remains central to our business and our patient-centric philosophy.

     

    We will continue to collaborate closely with our Patient Advocacy partners and communities to educate patients and their families on the value of genetic testing in diagnosing and potentially preventing disease. Together with you, we remain steadfast in empowering and supporting patients and highlighting the many opportunities where genetic testing may be beneficial. “

    Tuesday 

    - Prosser Pre-Print - Mapping PTBP splicing in human brain identifies targets for therapeutic splice switching including SYNGAP1

       - “We find that PTBP2 binding to SYNGAP1 mRNA promotes alternative splicing and non-sense mediated decay. Antisense oligonucleotides that disrupt PTBP binding sites on SYNGAP1 redirect splicing and increase gene and protein expression.”
