Are You Interested In Research?

We all know research is vital in not only increasing our understanding of HD but also in providing options to improve your quality of life. Most importantly research brings us one step closer to viable treatments and eventually a cure.

Your contribution and participation in research is essential to ensure the researchers continue to make progress. If you are interested in finding out more about research and/or becoming involved please view the page below.

Huntington’s Victoria proudly partners with the Huntington’s Research Group of Victoria (HRGV) who are extremely active in HD research. You can view some of the local research below, and find out how you can become involved.

EXPLORING THE GUT MICROBIOME AND GENE-ENVIRONMENT INTERACTIONS IN HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE: TOWARDS NOVEL THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES TO DELAY DISEASE ONSET AND PROGRESSION

About me

Our research includes using a model of Huntington’s disease where we are following up our discoveries regarding the beneficial effects of environmental enrichment (enhanced cognitive stimulation and physical activity) and exercise, to identify potential new therapies.  Using a transgenic mouse model of HD, our group has made progress in understanding changes that lead to cognitive, psychiatric and motor symptoms.
