Lisa Genova - Readers in Action

Donate To This Campaign

Help New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova, author of INSIDE THE O'BRIENS, raise funds for the HDSA HD Human Biology Project.

The HD Human Biology Project was launched in 2013 with the goal of fostering innovative research at the HDSA Centers of Excellence with the goal of better understanding the biology of Huntington’s disease as it occurs in humans. Despite the identification of the gene responsible for Huntington’s disease over 20 years ago, to date, there are no effective treatments to modify disease progression available to patients.  While the identification of the huntingtin gene led to an incredible number of useful animal models to help us better understand HD biology, the most physiologically relevant scientific observations that will guide the research community in the hunt for effective therapies for HD will be those that are recorded in HD patients.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL DONATIONS WILL BE ALLOCATED TO THE HDSA HD HUMAN BIOLOGY PROJECT
