Rare Diseases Models & Mechanisms – Europe (RDMM-Europe): This brokerage service will catalyse connections between people discovering new genes in rare disease patients and basic scientists who can study those genes and pathways in model organisms. Solve-RD brokerage service are to:
*provide functional validation of human genetic variants that cause disease;
*supplement clinical disease gene discoveries by generating functional data so as to get higher impact publications;
*develop insights into potential rationale for treatment (e.g. identification of candidate drug targets) via knowledge of a disease gene pathway; and
*establish longer term collaborations between basic scientists and clinicians that will lead to subsequent grant funding in support of outstanding basic and/or applied research
