Consortium of Rare Genetic and Bone Marrow Disorders India Network@NITTEDU (CRG.BMD|IN)

  • India is the second most populous country in the world with a population of about 1.38 billion people, and growing.
  • It is estimated that nearly 72-96 million individuals in India suffer from a rare, orphan or neglected disease, defined by the World Health Orgainzation (WHO) as having a prevalence of <5 per 10,000 individuals
  • 6000-8000 Rare diseases have been identified the world over of which about 450 have been reported in India.
  • The study and understanding of Rare Diseases in India is particularly poignant and necessary given the high degree of endogamy practiced in communities as well the large number of consanguineous marriages, leading to an unusually high number of autosomal recessive genetic diseases observed


To build a collaborative network of health care providers and scientists to decode the molecular underpinnings and understand the extent of rare genetic and bone marrow failure disorders in India.


By identifying the genetic cause of rare genetic diseases and bone marrow failure syndromes and unraveling the underlying disease biology, we aspire to provide new and innovative insights leading to improved targeted therapeutic options for patients
