Urea cycle disorders (UCDs) are rare but devastating genetic conditions. Fifteen years ago, the Urea Cycle Disorders Consortium (UCDC) became one of the first members of the RDCRN. Since then, UCDC has flourished into an international network of 16 academic centers in the United States, Canada and Europe that provide state-of-the-art care and conduct cutting-edge clinical research. During the next
The porphyrias are a group of rare, inherited disorders, each caused by a deficiency with one of eight enzymes necessary to produce heme, an important component of hemoglobin and other proteins. The porphyrias are classified as either acute hepatic (liver) or cutaneous (skin); the former is characterized generally by acute attacks of severe abdominal pain accompanied by nausea, vomiting and other
Eosinophilic esophagitis, eosinophilic gastritis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis and eosinophilic colitis are disorders in which a type of immune cells (called eosinophils) build up in the digestive tract, causing tissue damage to the esophagus, stomach or colon. These disorders are painful and lifelong, and they make it hard or impossible for people to eat many or all foods. The Consortium of

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and the resulting coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have stretched healthcare systems thin across the world. During a COVID-19 surge, local academic medical centers must both care for the ill and perform research to better understand the pathogenicity of this disease. Here, we provide an account of a 49-day period during which we built
- The Developmental Synaptopathies Consortium is composed of a group of medical centers throughout the US studying three related rare genetic syndromes that often cause autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability. Autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability (ASD/ID) are severe neurodevelopmental conditions with early childhood onset. Advances in genetics have indicated that ASD/ID
The New York and Connecticut Consortium encourages joint ventures among the New York and Connecticut area CTSA institutions (NYCON) to develop collaboration between CTSA programs in the areas of medical scientist training; the creation of regional databases of facilities; regional training opportunities for investigators and research coordinators; the exploration of barriers to improved social
