Collaborative WT award on HD for UCL and Cambridge researchers

Collaborative WT award on HD for UCL and Cambridge researchersUCL has announced that a team of researchers from UCL and the University of Cambridge led by Professor Sarah Tabrizi (pictured), Director of the Huntington’s Disease Centre, UCL Institute of Neurology, have been granted a prestigious Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award in one of the largest investments in Huntington’s Disease (HD) ever given by a public funding body in the UK (http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/Funding/Biomedical-science/Funding-schemes/Science-collaborative-awards/index.htm).  The 5-year, £3.4 million investment will support research to help our understanding of disease mechanisms in HD and, importantly, their response to treatment.
