Local fundraisers support Huntington's research
Following a tour of our research labs, a local fundraising group began their efforts to support the 'world-leading research overseen by Dr Shouqing Luo.
"All our local fundraising is as the result of a visit we paid to the labs at PUPSMD to meet the team trying to find a cure for Huntington’s disease. We were impressed by what we saw and decided to support local research – we are fortunate to have a team of scientists on our doorstep who are working to develop a treatment for a disease which has touched us all so deeply.”
