7,000 rare diseases, one community fighting for cures. We’re excited to be part of the @ChanZuckerbergInitiative’s #RareAsOne Network
The CDCN has partnered with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to expand our work on drug repurposing for the rare disease community. The goal is to understand the state of drug repurposing in rare diseases and create a shared, free resource that will make it easier to pursue successful drug repurposing. If you’d like to join us in this important work as a rare disease organization, patient, loved one of a patient, physician, or researcher learn more here: https://cdcn.org/roadmap/ and don't forget to participate here: bit.ly/repurposingsurvey
