NCATS has named Cincinnati Children’s as its new data management and coordinating center for the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network. The five-year, $28 million grant is among the largest ever received by Cincinnati Children’s. The funds will be used to ensure that rare disease research studies are more efficient, effective and more often lead to healthcare improvements. The coordinating center will facilitate studies involving thousands of scientists across the United States—and 22 other nations—by collecting, organizing, sharing and analyzing exploding amounts of “Big Data” about rare diseases.
