ENCORE is a multidisciplinary group of dedicated professionals in the Erasmus MC who aim to deliver the best care and developed cures for patients with rare genetic neurocognitive diseases.


What we do

The different professionals of our team gather around the patient together with parents or caretakers to deliver optimal patient and family-centered care.

For each syndrome a dedicated team runs a multidisciplinary clinic organized around the core symptoms of the disease. The diseases we study also show a lot of overlap, both clinically and biologically, which helps us to generate more knowledge across syndromes.
