The Manton Center Gene Discovery Core
Hi friends and fam!
We are a research study called the Gene Discovery Core (GDC) at The Manton Center for Orphan Disease Research .
We are dedicated to helping families find a genetic diagnosis for their or their child's rare or unknown condition and accelerating potential therapies. We work closely with researchers and clinicians all around the world.
Our study is often the last option for families when clinical testing is no longer available, inconclusive or simply too expensive. These rare diseases are called Orphan diseases because they haven’t been “adopted” by a specific area of medicine and a lot of these families feel lost, frustrated, or alone.
We are a diverse group of researchers and healthcare providers committed to this unique patient population.
We have formed a team to participate in the Boston Children’s Eversource walk to support our research. Any donation to our team would be greatly appreciated and will directly support our quest to bring answers to families and further advance genetic discovery.
Thank you so much for your support,
the Gene Discovery Core
