RD-Connect (www.rd-connect.eu) will develop a global infrastructure for sharing the research outputs of these and other rare disease projects, enabling scientists and clinicians worldwide to access a single centralized repository for omics data, phenotypic and biomaterial information. Every IRDiRC research project will be entitled to share its own data and access related data from other projects under policies agreed at a global level.

Coordinator: Professor Hanns Lochmller MD, Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University, UK

Support-IRDiRC (www.irdirc.org) provides the organisational support for the implementation of the International Rare Diseases Research Consortium in close collaboration with the European Commission, the NIH and research funding agencies from participating countries, as well as with relevant research projects supporting IRDiRC objectives.

Coordinator: Dr Sgolne Aym, Emeritus Director of Research, INSERM, France

The International Rare Diseases Research Consortium (IRDiRC) aims to foster international collaboration in rare disease research, a highly challenging area of medical research that has the potential to benefit tremendously from the recent advances in genomics, proteomics and other omics technologies. IRDiRC has set itself the bold aims of delivering 200 new rare disease therapies and diagnosis for all rare diseases by the year 2020. Spearheaded by the European Union, the United States National Institutes of Health and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the IRDiRC now numbers 29 member funding institutions across the world. This global collaboration between major research funders will ensure greater harmonization of rare disease research activities and lay the foundations for future networking that is essenti
