This opportunity will catalyze the creation of a Pediatric Rare Disease Clinical Network to streamline rare diseases clinical research across Canada and to facilitate the collaboration among researchers across pillars, people with lived and living experience (e.g., patients, family, caregivers), health care providers, industry, policy and regulatory bodies. This Network will maximize synergies to advance discovery across the rare disease continuum from prevention to diagnosis through to treatment and survivorship to improve health outcomes for children and adolescents affected by rare diseases. The aim is to support national and international clinical trials to rapidly advance discoveries to support rare diseases patients and their families across Canada.
