  • Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium

    Vasculitis refers to a group of rare diseases that involve inflammation of blood vessels, which disrupts blood flow and often causes damage to the body’s organs. The cause of most forms of vasculitis remains unknown, and treatments involve the use of strong medications that can have serious side effects. The Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium (VCRC) is an international, multicenter clinical

  • Nephrotic Syndrome Rare Disease Clinical Research Network III (NEPTUNE)

    Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis, Minimal Change Disease, and Membranous Nephropathy, presenting as Nephrotic Syndrome (NS), are a group of rare renal diseases that may cause serious complications and end-stage kidney disease, generating significant individual, societal and economic burdens.

  • Inherited Neuropathies Consortium (INC)

    Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is one of the most common inherited neurological disorders, affecting approximately 1 in 2,500 people in the United States. CMT, also known as hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy or peroneal muscular atrophy, comprises a group of disorders that affect peripheral nerves. The Inherited Neuropathy Consortium (INC) is a network of researchers working to find the

  • Consortium of Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease Researchers (CEGIR)

    Eosinophilic esophagitis, eosinophilic gastritis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, and eosinophilic colitis are disorders in which a type of immune cell (called eosinophils) builds up in the digestive tract, causing gastrointestinal tissue damage. These disorders are painful, lifelong, and make it hard or impossible for people to eat many or all foods. The Consortium of Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal

  • Clinical Research in ALS and Related Disorders for Therapeutic Development (CReATe)

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal disease that involves progressive death of motor nerves in the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord. The disease is closely related to disorders such as primary lateral sclerosis, hereditary spastic paraplegia, progressive muscular atrophy, and frontotemporal dementia. These diseases have shared genetic causes and underlying biology as well as a shared
