The Nicholas Conor Institute (TNCI) participated in World Rare Disease Day on February 28th. There are currently just over 7,000 rare diseases identified, affecting 30 million people in the US alone. Although these numbers are staggering, what is of even greater concern is that approximately 75% of those affected are children. For more information go to the Global Genes Project website.
