About

The PND association is a disease organization representing children and families who are affected by a pediatric neurotransmitter disease.

Our mission is to help children and families who are affected by PND's, support the identification of new PND's, find better treatments and ultimately a cure for those diseases that are already known.

The PND Association is a non-profit, voluntary organization.
