Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases (CRND) is an academic and outreach center devoted to the advancement of treatments for rare and neglected diseases. CRND's focus is to identify treatments for rare neurogenerative diseases, rare cancers, and neglected infectious diseases through programs that partner with researchers, service organizations, community health care providers and patient families. 

Our interactive program provides a comprehensive approach to enhancing diseases knowledge and treatments. The goal of the center is to create lasting relationships with patient families through medical record review, community events, education and research programs that develop successful treatments and therapies.

Celebration of ND Trail / 175th Anniversary 

In the tradition of Father Sorin’s inspirational journey and intrepid spirit—our Notre Dame spirit—we retraced his journey from Vincennes to Notre Dame. We traveled those miles in a collective renewal of our determination, to rededicate ourselves to Notre Dame’s mission to seek God, study the world, and serve humanity—to boldly lead the way into the new chapters of our story.
