SYNGAP1 is a protein that is critical for the development of cognition and proper synapse function. Mutations in the gene lead to a neurodevelopmental disorder and are associated with intellectual disability. They are also proposed to play a significant role in other diseases such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.

From 15 to 16 March 2021, the Syngap1 Symposium brings together exceptional scientists from around the world with the incentive to advance Syngap1 research, build networks, stimulate collaboration and coordinate efforts.  

Due to the current pandemic, the event will take place online. The event’s public sessions can be attended free-of-charge (email registration required).

Sarah Teichmann is interested in global principles of regulation of gene expression and protein complexes, with a focus on immunity. Sarah did her PhD at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK and was a Beit Memorial Fellow at University College London. She started her group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in 2001, discovering stereotypical pathways of assembly and evolution of protein complexes during this time. In 2013, she moved to the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton/Cambridge, jointly with the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute and the Wellcome Sanger Institute (WSI). In February 2016 she became Head of the Cellular Genetics Programme at the WSI and co-founded the Human Cell Atlas international initiative which she continues to lead. Sarah was elected a member of EMBO in 2012, a fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2015 and a fellow of the Royal Society in 2020.
