Rare diseases cannot hide from Dr. Daniel Kastner, a fellow at the National Institutes of Health. He not only cares for patients with unusual maladies but also goes after the root causes of illness the way a bloodhound goes after a bone. And he finds effective treatments. He is a finalist in this year’s Service to America Medals program, and he discussed his work on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
