Finding Better Treatments for Rare Disease
About 7,000 rare diseases affect 30 million Americans. Two-thirds of those affected are children.
At Sanford Research, we’re working to improve treatment of rare and pediatric diseases – neurodegenerative diseases including Batten disease, ciliary-associated disorders, kidney diseases and many more.
Our work includes:
- Understanding the genetic, cellular and molecular development of organs and disease
- Developing and testing effective therapies in the lab and clinical trials
By uncovering the causes of rare and childhood disorders, we can create better ways to treat them.
