On October 17th, a new MOOC entitled “Introduction to translational research for Rare Diseases” will be available.

On this five-week course from the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases, you’ll explore the therapeutic development process from the unique perspective of rare diseases.

You will follow the journey from discovery to approved treatment, learn how therapeutic targets and drug candidates are identified and validated, and examine the special regulatory frameworks.

This course is designed for researchers and students in medicine and health-related research fields, as well as healthcare professionals wanting to further their knowledge of translational research in rare diseases.

It is also suitable for biotech and start-up developers and Patients Advocacy Organisation representatives who want to increase their understanding of current practices in therapeutic developments for rare diseases.
