IDIBAPS joins an ambitious project to find a cure for Huntington's disease

By now Huntington's disease has no effective treatment, and there are no appropriate experimental models to study potential drugs. The Cure of Huntington's Disease Initiative (CHDI) is promoting an international effort to change this. This is a private foundation that was interested in embryonic stem cell work by the Stem cells and regenerative medicine group led by Dr. Josep M. Canals, from the IDIBAPS team of Cellular biology of pathological processes and the Department of Cell Biology, Immunology and Neuroscience of the University of Barcelona’s Faculty of Medicine.
