The North American Mitochondrial Disease Consortium (NAMDC), consisting of several centers of excellence in the study and treatment of mitochondrial disease, maintains a Clinical Patient Registry. The NAMDC Registry collects information to help scientists learn more about mitochondrial diseases and their potential causes.

NAMDC is part of the Rare Disease Clinical Research Network (RDCRN), a project of the National Institutes of Health Office of Rare Diseases. For more information on NAMDC and its research activities, see the RDCRN web site for NAMDC.

NAMDC’s main research project is a Clinical Patient Registry. The NAMDC Registry collects information on patients who have been diagnosed with a mitochondrial disorder. The purpose of the patient registry is twofold:

1) to have ready access to patients contact information for upcoming research studies, and
2) to have ready access to patient clinical data for research studies.

To date, NAMDC has enrolled over one thousand patients from sixteen different NAMDC centers around the country.

If you are not near one of the sixteen NAMDC centers, you may be able to enroll remotely.
