Collectively, HRGV provides clinical and support services, and advocates on behalf of people impacted by Huntington's disease. We conduct world-class research to improve what we know about Huntington's disease and how we treat it.
Learn more about our various current research projects and how to get involved with them below. We are constantly looking for research participants to help us. If you are interested in participating in our research, we recommend you sign up to our participant registry. By registering, you will be kept informed of all relevant studies we are currently conducting. People from all clinics are welcome to join our registry. By joining you are helping us improve outcomes for all Huntington's patients.
Your participation in Huntington’s disease research can help lead to better treatments and more effective healthcare for people living with HD.
