TRND Resources

Internal Resources

As part of the NIH Intramural Research Program, the TRND program also has access to shared resources on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland, including small and large animal facilities and the NIH Clinical Center, the world’s largest facility dedicated to clinical research.

External Resources

The external TRND network includes organizations across the rare diseases patient community and, through close collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration, regulatory experts.

In situations where TRND internal resources are insufficient to generate key materials or data, such as Good Manufacturing Practice production and multi-species Good Laboratory Practice toxicology studies, NCATS leverages its government contracting capability to work with expert contract research organizations.
