We are progressively developing networks of families —both regional and genetic—around the world, coming together to learn about genetics and contribute to accelerating treatments for our children.
These groups are run by two SCN8A parents: Dr. Michael Hammer, father to Shay and discoverer of SCN8A as pathogenic for epilepsy in humans in 2012 and Gabrielle Conecker, mother to Elliott and Co-Founder of Wishes for Elliott.
The mission of our partnership is to bring families together with a wide range of stakeholders to better understand the genetics behind SCN8A and to collaborate towards a cure.
Part of our mission is to learn as much about SCN8A as we can. We do this via these meetings and much of what we discuss comes from what we've learned from the dedicated SCN8A Registry operated by Dr. Michael Hammer.
