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.
