Dr. J. M. Wilson.  Orphan Disease Center  & Genomics Laboratories

University of Pennsylvania.

The Orphan Disease Center and Genomics Laboratories are located in  the Translational Research Center part of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. The center, designed by the architects at Studio of Metropolitan Design,  is the first of its kind, which was created to facilitate translational research and therapy development to address the prevalence of certain orphan diseases that affect a marginalized population of individuals internationally.

Because each type of orphan disease affects such a small subset of the population, the need for research on and funding for such rare genetic mutations is grossly unmet. The goal of the Orphan Disease Center is to address these growing needs through continued collaboration and partnership, identifying and providing funding sources, and by providing technological and educational resources to academic researchers, biotech and pharmaceutical companies alike, to foster therapeutic development and innovative research initiatives.
