The Goals of the Manton Center

The Manton Center is the home for physicians and scientists who share a common vision. The goals of these collaborations are to:

  • Unlock the mysteries of orphan diseases in order to develop better diagnostic tests and design new treatments and cures
  • Discover fundamental biological principles that have broad applications and can lead to advances in our understanding of common diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other major health problems
  • Train a new generation of investigators who will infuse creative energy into the battle against orphan diseases
  • Disseminate The Manton Center’s findings among lay and medical/ scientific communities locally, nationally and globally to spur interest and support for orphan disease research and care
