CETT Program

The Collaboration, Education, and Test Translation (CETT) Program is providing resources to develop genetic tests for rare genetic conditions that may not otherwise come to market.  From the website:

Access to quality genetic testing for rare diseases is essential in the diagnosis and management of patients with inherited diseases and their families. Currently the development of tests for rare genetic diseases is not keeping pace with the progress of knowledge of the genetic basis of disease.

At the request of the U.S. Congressional House Appropriations Committee to address the development of diagnostic tests for rare diseases, the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) established the Collaboration, Education, and Test Translation (CETT) Program for Rare Genetic Diseases, a pilot program to promote new genetic test development and better understanding of each rare disease.
