Rare disease research is hindered by severely limited resources. We plan on doing something about this, but we need your help.
Sadly, less than 50% of currently recognized rare diseases have organizations to advocate on behalf of patients and rare disease research. Compounding the problem, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are often reluctant to fund rare diseases research because of the perceived poor economics associated with the small target populations.
So, we are hoping to do a crowdfunding to help raise proceeds for us to provide our rare disease biology modeling technology to a non-profit researcher free of charge.
Our computational models of rare diseases are easily customizable by the investigator and have a number of important applications. They are designed for hypothesis generation, research and experimental planning, grant writing and identification of potential biomarkers.
Help us get the word out about our upcoming crowdfunding. Visit our page on Krowdster. Sign up there and get a unique referral link to provide to your friends. Refer the most friends to our follower list and you can pick a rare disease of your choice (non cancer) to be added to our shortlist of diseases to target first. Or, if you just want to receive updates about our service roll-out, sign up to our email list on our Contact Us page.

We intend to use this space to help you get to know 123Genetix, our team and our mission, as well as to create more awareness for rare diseases and the limitations their researchers face.
