Researching Rare Diseases of the Skeleton: The RUDY Study

A disease is defined as rare if it affects less than 1 in 2000 people, but the total number of people in Europe suffering from rare diseases is thought to be over 30 million.

To mark Rare Disease Day Dr Kassim Javaid, NDORMS, University of Oxford will discuss how he is transforming the clinical care of patients suffering with rare disorders of the skeleton using patient driven research.
