Pediatrics & Rare Diseases

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.
