We aim to bring together clinicians and researchers from across South Wales.
We are one of the leading centres in the UK for initiating and co-ordinating research into Huntington’s disease.
The 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 is an inherited condition that damages nerve cells in the brain.
It is a degenerative condition, so the damage it does to the brain gets progressively worse over time and can affect movement, cognition (perception, awareness, thinking, judgement) and behaviour.
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)
