Summary: Rare diseases (less than 5 in 10 000 people affected) are at a level of 7 000 to 8 000, of which 80% with a genetic etiology. Recognized as a public health priority by the French government since 2005, rare diseases affect about 3 million individuals in France. However, despite recent successes in diagnosis, care or therapeutic development, 50% of patients are still without any molecular diagnosis and effective treatment exists for only 5% of cases. The objective of the MarMaRa institute is to gather research laboratories, medical teams, educational teams and industrial partners around cross-cutting actions to develop cutting-edge research for the benefit of patients.
