HOPES is a team of faculty and undergraduate students at Stanford University dedicated to making scientific information about Huntington's Disease (HD) more readily accessible to the public. Our goal is to survey the rapidly growing scientific literature on HD and to consolidate this information into a coherent, reliable web resource that reflects current scientific understanding of HD. We seek to provide accurate, helpful information about the causes of HD, existing treatment options, and recent advances in HD research.
We emphasize that we are not medical professionals, nor are we affiliated with the researchers or laboratories mentioned on our pages. The information we present is intended for educational purposes only and should not be construed as offering diagnoses or recommendations. We operate as a not-for-profit public service organization, and our funding is entirely from private sources.
