About RD-Connect

RD-Connect is a unique global infrastructure project that links up databases, registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics data used in rare disease research into a central resource for researchers worldwide.

The video is also available in: French, Spanish, Italian, German, Arabic and Russian. Subtitles are available in over 40 languages.


In a six-year project funded by the European Union but uniting researchers across the world, it will develop an integrated research platform in which complete clinical profiles are combined with -omics data and sample availability for rare disease research, in particular research funded under the International Rare Diseases Research Consortium (IRDiRC).
