Introduction

Below are links to videos related to the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN), a clinical research initiative of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The UDN has opened an online patient application portal called the UDN Gateway to streamline the application process. This application system sets the stage for the network to advance its core mission: to diagnose patients who suffer from conditions that even skilled physicians have been unable to diagnose despite extensive clinical investigation.

The National Human Genome Research Institute provides this footage to assist reporters and producers interested in coion process vering this discovery and to help the public understand the work of the institute.
