James Radke is the founder and managing editor of Rare Disease Report, a website dedicated to providing news and information for the rare disease community. James began his medical writing career soon after learning his daughter had a rare disease and there was a need for one person in the household to work from home. After years of working as a very successful freelance medical writer, James created Rare Disease Report and he has enjoyed raising awareness of the many aspects of orphan drug development that are changing the way rare disease patients are being managed.

James has a PhD in Neuropharmacology and has published a dozen peer reviewed articles while conducting research at a variety of prestigious institutions throughout the globe, including Emory University, University of British Columbia, and University of Crete.
