Huntington's Disease Center at Johns Hopkins

Faculty and Staff of the Huntington's Disease Center

The faculty and staff of the Huntington's Disease Center at Johns Hopkins welcome you! 

The Center is located in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. We primarily serve Maryland and adjacent areas including portions of Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia but we are also available for consultations for patients from around the world. We offer clinical services related to the routine care and follow-up of individuals suffering from HD. These include, but are not limited to, social work, medication management of symptoms, placement assistance, and support groups.

As part of our dedication to the family and individuals suffering from Huntington's disease (HD) we offer a number of research programs. These programs include a presymptomatic testing program, follow-up studies over time, neuroimaging research studies, and clinical trials.Laboratory research programs include basic studies of the biochemistry and cell biology of HD, and therapeutic studies in cell models and mouse models.
