EXCELERATE WP8: ELIXIR infrastructure for Rare Disease research

WP leaders: Ivo Gut (ES) and Marco Roos (NL)

Organised around the main actors in the development of new rare diseases therapies (data generators and curators, researchers and clinicians, SMEs, and the pharmaceutical industry), the main objective of the Rare Disease Use Case is to support the development of new therapies for rare diseases. The use case will:

  • Build the ELIXIR registry of data resources and analysis tools critical for the development of rare disease research
  • Implement a technical framework for the comparison and standardisation of services useful for rare-disease communities
  • Collaborate with rare-disease communities in organising and running  training courses, workshops and jamborees
