PREPARE aims to establish the world’s largest:

  • clinical ARCA database
  • Ataxia NGS consortium
  • ARCA biobank repository


Correspondingly, it collates NGS data-sets, registry-based patient data for genotype-phenotype and natural history studies, biomaterials (plasma, serum, DNA, RNA, Dried Blood Spots, urine, CSF) for biomarker identification as well as patients to aggregate trial-ready-cohorts.

If you are interested to contribute ARCA patients, NGS datasets and/or biomaterials and would like to apply for becoming an associated Partner of PREPARE, please contact us via e-mail Matthis Synofzik or Selina Reich.
