Volunteers needed to help in Huntington’s disease research
The Academic Unit of Neurology of Trinity College Dublin need volunteers to take part in ground breaking research of Huntington’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. This research, led by Prof. Orla Hardiman, aims to improve prediction of symptom progression rates and improve the identification of new treatments.
To complete this research, we urgently need volunteers of any age above 18 years old, who do not have blood relatives with Huntington’s disease (e.g. family care givers, friends etc.), to provide baseline measurements in a number of related research projects.
Volunteers will be asked to take part on one occasion with the option of later participating at further time-points. Taking part involves performing mental or movement tasks or relaxing while biological signals are recorded over the skin. While not essential, a small blood sample can also be provided to help with genetic research.
