Research projects registered with Orphanet are those which are supported by a grant from official research institutions at national or European level, or by NGOs after a peer-review process.

The data is updated annually.


The data collection takes place in European and surrounding countries and is currently ongoing. Research projects funded by funding agencies outside of the Orphanet consortium are collected by the coordinating team if the funding agency is member of the IRDiRC consortium. The database cannot yet be regarded as comprehensive. If no research project is listed for a disease, a group of diseases or a gene, it may be that there is no ongoing research activity, or that we have not yet collected the information, but it is also possible that the researcher has refused to be listed.

Orphanet aims to provide rare disease information to healthcare professionals, patients, and their relatives, in order to contribute improving the diagnosis, care and treatment of these diseases. Information in Orphanet is not intended to replace professional health care.

Orphanet cannot be held responsible for harmful, truncated or erroneous use of any information found in the Orphanet database.
