Huntingdon’s disease is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder characterised by neurodegeneration and neural dysfunction. It is caused by mHTT protein aggregation in certain parts of the brain, which particularly affects neurons, while glial cells seem less affected. Anne Jansen investigates what makes these cells less susceptible to the toxic effects of mHTT, in the hope of discovering new perspectives on possible treatments for Huntingdon’s disease.
