Research Network: Rare Diseases (Research Network: Expediting collaboration between basic and clinician scientists in functional studies of novel rare disease genes)

"This program seeks to support a Rare Disease Network aiming at maintaining Canada's leadership in enabling clinical geneticists who are identifying rare disease gene mutations to collaborate with model organism researchers with expertise in the cognate gene's function, and to develop the capacity to study genes for which no suitable models can be identified in Canada or in other countries with similar networks. This will provide a powerful incentive for expanded international collaborations between Canadian model organism researchers and clinical geneticists elsewhere, and will enable reciprocal arrangements whereby model organism researchers elsewhere will be funded by other networks to collaborate with Canadian clinicians.
