More Than Rare

At Acceleron, we say that patients are our “North Star.” While our mission is focused on addressing rare diseases to improve the lives of patients and their caregivers, we know that these individuals are defined by much more than their symptoms, limitations, or treatments.

We would like to introduce you to a few people who, despite all being part of the rare disease community, have unique backgrounds and stories to share. They are More Than Rare.
