Thank you to everyone who sent kind messages after I announced the end of MassGenomics earlier this month. Please rest assured that this website and all of its articles will remain online for the foreseeable future.
Also, I have an important announcement. Today is Rare Disease Day, an annual event that aims to raise awareness of rare diseases and the pressing need for more research. It’s the perfect occasion to announce KidsGenomics, my new blog about the genomics of rare diseases and pediatric cancer.
The format will be similar to MassGenomics, with posts every couple of weeks (sign up here for notifications). I’ll be expanding the content to include interviews with clinicians/researchers working on pediatric diseases, and patients/families affected by them. Head over to KidsGenomics.org to see my first two posts: a review of a paper about patients with multiple rare diseases in The New England Journal of Medicine, and an editorial on why rare disease research matters.
