Publications and Presentations

A major goal of PREDICT-HD is to get research findings out to the public as quickly as possible. To that end, we are always thinking of topics that we can write an article about in order to get our findings published in medical journals. Researchers also travel around the world to present PREDICT-HD findings at medical conferences and other venues.

 

Below is a listing of published articles reporting findings from PREDICT-HD, as well as a listing of PREDICT-HD presentations. When possible, a link has been provided to an article summary or full text of the article.

 

We're also working on providing easy-to-read summaries of selected published articles, so you can get an overview of the study findings that we've published. Click here for more information and a current listing of summaries.
