We aim to bring together clinicians and researchers from across south Wales and beyond.
We are one of the leading centres in the UK for initiating and co-ordinating research into Huntington’s disease.
Our clinic team provides specialist advice and care for people who either have, or are at risk of developing, Huntington’s Disease, and their families and carers.
Huntington’s disease (HD) research is at a pivotal juncture with new treatments coming to trials. Cardiff University is one of two major internationally leading UK multidisciplinary centres studying HD.
Our HD network is ideally placed to address the challenges in delivering new therapies as they become available. As a centre, We have individual track records of high-profile research outputs. The translational stage of HD research means that much of our output, individually and collectively, has the potential for substantial impact for the lives of patients and their families.
We collaborate with individual clinicians, academics and research groups in Cardiff and beyond.
Our main collaborators within the University are:
- Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute (NMHRI)
- Brain Repair And Intracranial Neurotherapeutics (BRAIN) Unit
- MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics (MRC CNGG)
- Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC)
