As a recently established initiative, GATHER Foundation aims to promote and support the generation of minimum requirement frameworks for the curation and collection of harmonized clinical, genetic and molecular data in the field of NDDs.

Our ultimate goal at GATHER Foundation is to instate an era of precision medicine for patients with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). GATHER Foundation aims to create a strategic, non-for-profit point of contact to facilitate data sharing across academic and clinical centers.
