Official HSR Sprint Race Sponsor
Official HSR Endurance Series Sponsor
The Department of Neurology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA sincerely thanks the drivers, fans, and volunteers at the HSR event who came together in support of Huntington’s disease (HD) research. More than $30,000 in gifts (and counting) have been made to the John Paul Jr. Huntington Disease Fund.
Drs. Susan Perlman and Yvette Bordelon are leading the way in HD research in the Department of Neurology.
HD research progress:
· Beginning two new clinical drug trials that are translating new drug development into human use
· Preparing a third clinical drug trial to launch this the spring which will again involve application of a new drug to HD patients
· In negotiations for a fourth clinical drug trial of a novel new drug that might be neuroprotective
· Continuing to collaborate with a national research consortium for HD in the investigation of the natural history of HD and in the development of new biomarkers to track disease progression and improvement
Thank you for helping us “drive” our research forward in the race to find better answers for HD patients and their families.
