Huntington's Disease Research & Clinical Trials

The HDCRC is active in clinical HD research. Participants include those affected with HD, individuals at-risk for HD, family members or friends, and normal control subjects. Studies include clinical drug trials, observational trials, neuropsychological studies, and genetic research.

Participate in a Clinical Trial

Whether you are facing HD yourself, or are an interested family member or friend, volunteer research subjects are needed. Opportunities are scheduled at the participant's convenience. 

See our list of current clinical trials.

Neuropsychological Research

Neuropsychological studies explore the relationships between the brain and cognitive abilities. Cognitive testing provides an objective measure of a person's cognitive and emotional strengths and weaknesses.

We are dedicated to understanding how HD affects the person's overall functioning. Areas of focus include learning and memory, language, attention and other functions of the brain often affected by HD.
