The 401 Project raises funds to conduct critical research to cure MECP2 Duplication Syndrome

Scientists believe that MECP2 duplication syndrome will be a reversible disorder. The only way to achieve reversibility is through scientific research, which requires funding. I’m committed to fundraising to make this research possible in the hope of a better life for my son and others like him all around the world and for the siblings and parents of these precious children.

Recent research shows that there is great promise for curing MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. MECP2 Duplication Syndrome is a devastating neurological syndrome presenting first in infancy. Gene therapy research is advancing at exponential rates. Due to the straightforward genetic mutation causing MECP2 Duplication Syndrome, the syndrome is a first-line target for gene therapy.

Nearly all MECP2 Duplication Syndrome cure research has been funded by families and friends of children affected by MECP2 Duplication Syndrome.

Please join us in curing our children.
