One of the world's leaders in both clinical and basic research, the Baltimore Huntington's Disease Center (BHDC) at Johns Hopkins offers a wide range of opportunities for individuals and their families to participate in clinical research studies of Huntington's disease (HD). Participants may receive clinical testing and other services relevant to these studies. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, (NINDS), the Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA), and the Hereditary Disease Foundation (HDF) provide major funding support for the Center's on-site research programs.
Basic Research - laboratories looking for a cure for HD.
Neuroimaging - measuring changes in the brain to help predict HD.
Clinical Trials - testing experimental treatments for HD.
Genetic Studies - looking for factors that influence disease progression.
Neurogenetic Testing Laboratory - providing genetic testing for patients.
