Huntington's Disease Research

Huntington's Disease is an inherited brain disorder that results in the progressive loss of both mental faculties and physical control.  Presently there is no effective treatment or cure, although medication can relieve some symptoms. 

Our mission is to provide the best possible treatment and care for individuals and their families that are suffering from Huntington's Disease.  We also strive to further knowledge in Huntington's Disease and its treatment through basic and clinical research.
