Champions for rare diseases - an app idea

What is it about?

The idea was to expand on the open drug discovery teams (ODDT) mobile app and make it a more powerful tool to help rare disease patients and advocates.

Why is it important?

This was a poster at World 2014, a concept to go beyond ODDT - to connect researchers, patients, foundations etc all in an app & website. Ultimately the tool would do many of things that would help them pursue research or find scientists to fund, collaborate with etc.
