WHAT IS THE RD-CONNECT COMMUNITY?
The RD-Connect Community is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit, international association of individuals and organizations sharing the vision of building an open community that works to improve rare disease research. The Community’s mission is to promote, facilitate and accelerate rare disease research by maximizing the availability and (re)use of rare disease data and biosamples through provision of infrastructure, tools and services to share, analyse and link datasets and biosamples in a secure and regulated way. By promoting data sharing and analysis tools and the data sharing ethos among rare disease researchers and clinicians and by raising awareness among patient communities and policy makers, the community aims to maximise the impact of the tools and services developed by RD-Connect members.
