Share your story - ALL AGES - Individuals and Families
As PKU Day is approaching the Synlogic team has decided to dedicate one of its meeting rooms as the ‘PKU Room’. Synlogic would love to decorate it with photos of people living with PKU, and their stories. Please see attached example of a small "PKU Star” poster that Synlogic will create for each individual/family to inspire the Synlogic team as they develop novel therapies to help the community. Please send all submissions by Friday, December 21, 2018 to Majar Puurunen at or feel free to respond to this email with it and NECPAD will pass it along. Thank you!
