Thank you to our Sponsors

The work of M4RD relies on the generous contributions of sponsors.

In 2013, Students4RareDiseases (our original name) was grateful to receive funding from Sanofi Genzyme by working with The UK LSD Collaborative. They received the PAL Award for the project “Hear hooves…Think Zebra” and thanks to this award we transformed a small student society into a national organisation.

Since then different parts of the project have received sponsorship from different companies. We are currently working on our 2018 & 2019 campaign which has seen the rebranding to Medics4RareDiseases, the forming of a not-for-profit company, the application for charitable status and the start of The M4RD Red Flags project. This campaign has been sponsored by Biomarin, Inventiva, Sobi and Ultragenyx.

We would like to thank all our sponsors for their generous support. Rather than targeting resources on one specific disease they understand that one part of achieving earlier diagnoses is by breaking down the stigma of rare diseases in healthcare. The work of M4RD will benefit all rare diseases.

If you would like to be a part of this change, please get in touch.
