A virtual talk in collaboration with the Cardiff Scientific Society.
Huntington's disease is a relatively rare neurodegenerative condition which is thought to affect 10 people in every 10,000. Yet for the people it impacts the disease can be devastating, there is a fifty percent chance of passing the disease-causing gene to any children and the disease will lead to fatality ten to fifteen years after diagnosis. Huntington's disease presents a number of fascinating ethical, moral and societal dilemmas given the fact that the disease can be tested for via a blood test. The Huntington's disease community are closer than ever to a treatment for this cruel condition, but with a potential treatment on the horizon, how does it work and what other challenges might exist?
The talk will be delivered by Dr Emma Yhnell from Cardiff University.
