Expert mentoring service for rare diseases researchers

Provided by EATRIS – EUROPEAN INFRASTRUCTURE FOR TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE

EATRIS

Within the EJP RD, EATRIS offers an expert mentoring service for rare disease researchers. Advancing promising technologies and therapies towards clinical application is a complex undertaking. Academic research often lacks easy access to regulatory, therapy development expertise, manufacturing, and healthcare practice, leading to high failure rates.

The mentoring program provides mentoring on:

  • Translational feasibility
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Product classification
  • Quality assurance and control
  • Intellectual property strategy
  • Suitability of analytical readouts
  • Manufacturing
  • Therapy development
