One Year Anniversary: It Takes a Rare Community

May marks a year of podcasting for us, and we’re thankful for all those who have participated and the growing number of people who have listened to the podcasts. We are pleased with the overwhelming support for the podcast and the willingness of our partners and patients to share their stories.

We launched our Patient Empowerment Program with the purpose of building a nano-rare community and establishing a forum in which the voices of patients, advocates, and experts can come together focused on the nano-rare patient. We’re happy to report that we believe we have done just that – create a forum for our nano-rare community.

To celebrate one year of the Patient Empowerment Program, we compiled clips from previous interviews to form a special podcast episode centered around “community” and it really does take a “rare” community to do what we do.

About the Podcast

Patient Empowerment Program: A Rare Disease Podcast
Learn about Nano-Rare Diseases with biotech titan Dr. Stan Crooke of n-Lorem.
Join the nano-rare disease community! Interviews features leading physicians, scientists, biotech experts, and patient advocates. Lessons teach core concepts about drugs. Our host Dr. Crooke has led the creation of antisense technology and his foundation, n-Lorem, is using this powerful technology to discover, develop, and provide personalized experimental antisense oligonucleotide medicines to nano-rare patients for free, for life.

n-Lorem is a non-profit organization established to apply the efficiency, versatility and specificity of antisense technology to charitably provide experimental antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) medicines to treat patients (less than 30 patients) that are the result of a single genetic defect unique to only one or very few individuals. The advantage of experimental ASO medicines is that they can be developed rapidly, inexpensively and are highly specific. n-Lorem was founded by Dr. Stan Crooke, who founded IONIS Pharmaceuticals in 1989 and, through his vision and leadership, established the company as the leader in RNA-targeted therapeutics.

This podcast is produced by n-Lorem Foundation and hosted by Dr. Stanley T. Crooke, who is our Founder, CEO and Chairman. Our videographer is Jon Magnuson. Our producers are Kira Dineen, Jon Magnuson, Kim Butler, and Amy Williford. To learn more about n-Lorem, visit nlorem.org. Contact us at podcast@nlorem.org.
