RD-Connect is an integrated platform connecting databases, registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics for rare disease research. RD-Connect is working together with the European Reference Networks (ERNs) to support them in their research and diagnostic goals.

Together with the ERN EURO-NMD, RD-Connect is organising a series of webinars aiming to train ERN members at all levels. The webinars will let you learn how the RD-Connect tools can help you in your everyday work.

Upcoming Webinars:

Finding registries and biosamples in just a few clicks: RD-Connect Registry & Biobank Finder and Sample Catalogue

Tuesday 18 September 2018, 15:00 CEST

Mary Wang, Fondazione Telethon, Milan, Italy

This webinar will demonstrate how to use two tools that will help you quickly identify patient registries in Europe and beyond that hold data on your disease of interest. They also let you find rare disease biobanks and browse their sample collections, with detailed information about each individual sample.

Linking up all those data: why should we make data FAIR

Wednesday 26 September 2018, 15:00 CEST

Marco Roos, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands

The webinar will explain what makes data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and why it is critical that different types of information, such as medical records, clinical and phenotypic data, test results, sequencing data and biosample details are made FAIR at the source.
