Exciting research discovery about defective brain process in Huntington’s disease - supported by the HDF!

The Hereditary Disease Foundation awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship to Govinda Poudel, Ph.D. at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, to to apply sophisticated computational methods to analyze brain images of individuals with HD.

Friday's Herald Sun announced, "For the first time Monash University researchers used the technique to uncover degenerative brain processes in people with the faulty HD gene, decades before symptoms arise...The preliminary findings, published in Neuroscience Letters, sheds light on how different genes interact to affect processes in the brain that cause symptoms."
