Summary Enroll-HD is a worldwide observational study for Huntington’s disease families, which monitors how the disease appears and changes over time in different people, and is open to people who either have HD or are at-risk. There are more than 23,000 participants that have been enrolled into Enroll-HD and over 1 million aliquots of DNA, lymphoblastoid cell lines and PBMCs that are available for research. This project involves data mining of the latest periodic dataset release.

About us:RESEARCH AT THE NEUROPSYCHIATRY UNITThe unit forms a clinical arm of the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre, a joint research unit of the University of Melbourne and Melbourne Health/North-Western Mental Health. A number of our clinicians have strong research backgrounds in cognition, imaging, and clinical research. While providing high-quality assessments for our patients, we also foster and generate high-quality research in psychiatry and neuropsychiatry with the aim of improving our understanding of the disorders we treat, and to aid in the generation of new treatments. Our research involves characterising brain-behaviour relationships in a range of neuropsychiatric, neurodegenerative and neurometabolic disorders, and we also work with research groups locally and internationally in characterising these illnesses and in trialling novel treatments for brain disorders.
