For many of these diseases, no treatment is available. For some, drugs or other therapies exist, but patients are unable to access them because the cost is too high.KGI's Center for Rare Disease Therapies addresses these issues. It raises awareness of rare diseases and promotes promising treatments. The center educates students to become biotech industry leaders who understand rare diseases and recognize the need for remedies.
