HDSA’s research program has expanded in recent years, and in 2020 we’re using a new online platform to help smooth the application and review process. Right now we have two open applications, the Berman-Topper HD Career Development Fellowship, which supports young scientists who desire to devote their career to Huntington’s disease, and the Donald A. King Summer Research Fellowship, open to undergraduate students spending the summer working in an HD lab. Both application portals are open until March. Stay tuned for the Human Biology Project Request for Proposals, coming this spring. Contact LFox@hdsa.org to learn more.
Huntington’s Disease Educational Resources from the ASGCT
The mission of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) is to spread knowledge, awareness, and education around gene and cell therapy. With many HD gene therapies in the research pipeline and in clinical development, ASGCT has created some great educational resources that are specific for Huntington’s disease. Their site is full of easy-to-digest information about gene therapy across many different disorders, and we encourage you to explore and share their resources.
