The researcher and/or clinician selected must fit the following profile:

• Has successfully repositioned or repurposed a drug, device or nutriceutical for human clinical use in a rare disease(s), either FDA approved or off-label

• The results of this repurposed treatment are published in the clinical or scientific literature

• Patients who use or used the repurposed treatment enjoyed an increased quality and/or length of life

• Willing to be honored by Cures Within Reach, including being featured in the GHRA event written and online materials
