His role at NORD will be to provide medical guidance in all areas -- particularly advocacy and education -- to promote fair, compassionate public policies; encourage the development of safe, effective treatments; and increase awareness of rare diseases and the needs of patients and their families.

"Dr. Cote's extensive experience in orphan product development will help NORD represent the nearly 30 million Americans with rare diseases even more effectively," said Peter L. Saltonstall, NORD President and CEO.  "Our single biggest challenge at this time is that there is no treatment for most patients with rare diseases.  With Dr. Cote's help, NORD will be able to serve as an even stronger catalyst for the development of safe, effective treatments and ensuring patient access to them."

Since 1983, NORD has been the primary voice of the rare disease patient community in the U.S.  It provides advocacy, education and patient services on behalf of all rare disease patients and families.  Issues currently being addressed by NORD include the need for more rare disease education in the nation's medical schools, greater patient access to treatments and increased emphasis on rare disease research.  

From 2007 to May 2011, Dr. Cote served as Director of the FDA Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD).  That office is FDA's primary interface with companie
