The Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network (RDCRN) is an initiative of the Office of Rare Diseases Research (ORDR) at the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). Established by Congress under the Rare Diseases Act in 2002, RDCRN fosters collaborative research among scientists to better understand how rare diseases progress and to develop improved approaches for diagnosis and treatment. It currently funds research across 23 active consortia—national teams of researchers, patients and clinicians—focused on groups of rare disorders. The network, now in its fourth five-year funding cycle, is a partnership with funding and programmatic support provided by Institutes, Centers and Offices across NIH, including the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the National Institute of Mental Health and the Office of Dietary Supplements.
