Huntington's Disease Center of Excellence

The HDSA Center of Excellence at Emory was the first such center established.  It boasts one of the largest Huntington's disease clinics in the world and treats close to 150 patients yearly. The Emory HD team has also been part of the Huntington Study Group since its inception 25 years ago and actively participates in ongoing clinical research trials focusing on Huntington's disease.  In addition to a dedicated HD genetic counselor, the clinic also has a dedicated movement disorders social worker who can help with resources and questions regarding disability, care options, etc. 

Our mission is propelled by active research into the underlying mechanisms of Huntington's disease in the laboratory to develop novel therapies to improve the care of our patients.
