Rare disease researchers have a special relationship with patients and families affected by the diseases they study. Through the Hall of Fame, we wanted to give individuals and organizations an opportunity to recognize researchers whose work is important to them.
The Hall of Fame includes researchers at universities, teaching hospitals, NIH and companies whose dedication and commitment have advanced knowledge of specific rare diseases and, in some cases, led to important new treatments for patients.
Thank you for your nominations for 2013. There will be future opportunities to nominate additional researchers for Rare Disease Day 2014.
