Help4HD: DNA Repair with Joseph Hamilton
Last week on the Help4HD podcast, host Lauren Holder was joined by Dr. Joseph Hamilton, a researcher studying DNA mismatch repair in the lab of Dr. Sarah Tabrizi at University College London. Dr. Hamilton discussed his work studying genes that impact CAG repeat expansion. This can influence when HD symptoms begin and how quickly they progress in people with HD. To hear more about what we know about this process and what Dr. Hamilton hopes to learn through his research, listen to the full episode here.
