Thank you to our Sponsors & Donors
interested in becoming one too?
The work of M4RD relies on the generous contributions of sponsors and donors.
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 M4RD has received sponsorship and donations from different companies.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and donors 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.
