FP6 Rare Disease Projects aim to develop a database of rare diseases, which includes:  disease name, year of database entry, and description-- ultimately working toward furthering research that could potentially aid in the treatment of documented diseases.


The consortium database acts as a resource for collaboration on research that can affect the listed diseases.  By compiling this database, information on rare diseases that may be difficult to come by or find are made easily accessible.  Researchers searching for current or formed data on these rare diseases are able to use the list for networking capabilities.
