E-Rare opens new joint call

Published 13 July 2016

E-Rare – the ERA-net for research programmes on rare diseases – has opened a joint call to promote clinical and pre-clinical proof of concept studies for the potential application of medicinal products that are either already marketed or having achieved a significant stage in the development process in rare indications.

E-Rare encourages the use of European health research infrastructures, such as EATRIS to deliver on specific services.

EATRIS services encompasses among others:

  • In vivo imaging-enabled drug development, supporting pre-clinical and clinical assessment of target expression, modulation and internalisation, drug pharmacokinetics and biodistribution, normal organ uptake, optimisation of drug dose & scheduling, and assessment of inter-patient variation;
  • Drug (re-) formulation expertise, access to an array of drug delivery technologies;
  • Access to a wide array of specialised pre-clinical models, as well as clinical expertise and patient cohorts for many rare diseases.
