Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Nonprofit support and advocacy groups bring together patients, families, medical professionals, and researchers. These groups often raise awareness, provide support, and develop patient-centered information. Many are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct people to research, resources, and services. Many groups also have experts who serve as medical advisors. Visit their website or contact them to learn about the services they offer. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by GARD. Suggest an organization to add.

Gordon Research Conference on Multi-Drug Efflux Systems Shared Molecular Mechanisms but Diverging Roles in Physiology and Medicine
Sunday, March 17, 2013 -
Friday, March 22, 2013
Location: Four Points Sheraton/Holiday Inn Express, Ventura, CA
Description: The goal of the 2013 Multidrug Efflux Systems GRC is to bring together scientists from diverse fields to interact, learn from each other, identify new approaches and challenges, and make greater strides in overcoming the individual diseases that involve transporter efflux pumps. It is expected that this meeting will have a significant broad impact in education and training of future scientists working in crossdisciplinary areas.
