Connecting rare disease researchers worldwide

RD-Connect is an integrated platform connecting databases, registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics for rare disease research.

To help researchers study rare diseases, RD-Connect links different data types - omics (e.g. genomics), clinical information, patient registries and biobanks - into a common resource. RD-Connect enables scientists and clinicians around the world to analyse genomics data and share them with other researchers. By making data accessible beyond the usual institutional and national boundaries, RD-Connect speeds up research, diagnosis and therapy development to improve the lives of patients with rare diseases.
