Though there are charges for downloading the individual chapters, the frontmatter, including the Preface, can be downloaded at no cost. The Preface explains the applicability of rare disease research to finding cures for common diseases. The is theme is catching on in the biomedical research community and is changing the way we study and fund disease research, in general.
Please take a few minutes to download and read the Preface to my book. If you, or any of your relatives and friends, have a rare disease, you may find this book to be a real eye-opener.
