suite of applications into the Vanderbilt Center for Undiagnosed
Diseases workflow to evaluate difficult-to-diagnose patients in their
role as part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Undiagnosed
Disease Network (UDN).

Participating institutions in the UDN use the most advanced approaches
in genomics and research to search for answers for patients who have
been unable to find a diagnosis. The UDN is made up of seven top-ranked
institutions in the United States. Vanderbilt University Medical Center
is the first of many sites that have approached FDNA to use Face2Gene
for UDN cases.
