The Dash Alliance is calling for rare disease patients, caregivers, advocates, and other global stakeholders to join
us for Rare72, a collaborative hackathon-style model designed to
are diseases represent a research area with high unmet medical need and an opportunity to make a difference! The Children’s Tumor Foundation and MIT Hacking Medicine need your help to improve upon the data analytics and research methodologies being used today. Bring your data science, ML, and AI skills to the table, get access to some of the most talented experts in the field of big data analytics and experimentation, help find new insights, refine algorithms, and identify alternative approaches to therapies and research.
Utilize the datasets provided to work on your solution to improve data analytics, research methodology, and the lives of those living with rare diseases.
Every Rare72 cycle kicks off with 72 hours of live community collaboration. For three days, we host status meetings while the global rare disease community discusses current challenges and sources the best resources available.

Rare72 is a hackathon-style model organized by the Dash Alliance for rare disease collaboration (formerly My City Med). Hack for RARE 2021 is a virtual hackathon event organized by the Children’s Tumor Foundation and MIT Hacking Medicine.
For the first time, we are inviting rare disease organizations to join us and create challenges that will advance the research fields around a distinct group of rare genetic conditions:
The RARE Incubator
The RARE Incubator is a network of experts in NF and other rare diseases. It includes business and technology disciplines experts, patients and caregivers who will be available to mentor the winning and runner-up teams during the hackathon and post-hackathon activities. Members of the RARE Incubator will be accessible via slack, email, and tele- or video-conferencing. The Incubator, through its network, will help teams to access lab resources (wet-lab experiments) by creating collaborations between project teams and experts. During their incubation periods, teams working on promising projects will have access to research funders, early-stage investors, angel investors, pharma or biotech companies, and participate at investor conferences in order to access more funding or create a startup. The maximum project incubation time is one year.
The inaugural launch of our first Rare72 cycle is approaching fast.
