Our laboratory studies Huntington's disease – a rare genetic and neurodegenerative disease. We have been researching this area for more than 20 years. Our goal is to contribute to the understanding of the physiopathology of this disease and to develop pharmacological, genetic and cellular strategies that could slow down the course of the illness or prevent its onset.
