KCNQ2 Collaborations


Collaboration is key to efficiently advancing our mission to improve the lives of patients with KCNQ2 developmental and epileptic encephalopathy.

While KCNQ2 itself is a rare disease, it has many commonalities with other rare and not-so-rare disorders and manifests with symptoms – such as autism, sleep and mood disorders, and GI issues – that are seen quite commonly.  We welcome discussions and partnerships with doctors, researchers, academic institutions, biopharmaceutical companies, and patient organizations, on a global basis, who share our passion for advancing treatments for patients with KCNQ2.  If you are interested in opening the dialogue with KCNQ2 Cure Alliance, please contact Caroline Loewy.
