Know Your Disease Landscape


Finding out what is known about your disease will assist you in setting your registry goals and creating a plan to build relationships with researchers. For most of the almost 7,000 identified rare diseases, scientists know very little. To build a successful registry, you’ll need to learn what is known about your rare disease, determine what research is already being done, and identify your registry stakeholders.
