About


The Stanford Center for Undiagnosed Diseases (CUD) is one of the 12 clinical sites of the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) supported by the NIH Common Fund. Our goal is to find answers for individuals whom exhaustive clinical work-up remains unrevealing. Patients undergo consultations with multiple specialists, and multi-omics profiling including metabolome, transcriptome, immunome, exome and genome sequencing are some of the tools we have available to find a diagnosis. We have also developed tools and workflows to overcome barriers present when working with self-identified Hispanic patients, such as culture, language, having access to internet, ability to request medical records to multiple health providers, and unfamiliarity with genetics and genetic research.
