Our story

Onno Faber & Nancy Yu

Onno Faber (Founder) & Nancy Yu (CEO)

AllStripes’ mission is to unlock new treatments for people with rare disease. About 1 in 10 people have a rare disease, and half are children.

AllStripes (formerly RDMD) was co-founded in 2017 by CEO Nancy Yu and Onno Faber, a rare disease patient deeply frustrated by the drug development process.

“I was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease and it completely changed my perspective,” Onno shares. “Patients can’t be bystanders in drug development.”

As the first and only research platform dedicated to rare diseases, AllStripes makes it easy for patients to contribute to new treatment studies from home. We do the work to collect and analyze your de-identified medical records to help power faster, better drug development for your condition.

The name AllStripes was inspired by the official symbol for the rare disease community, the zebra. When we come together and learn from each other’s experiences we can push for better treatments across all rare conditions.
