The Hereditary Disease Foundation is a non-profit research organization established in 1971. Focusing on Huntington's disease as a model for neurodegenerative disorders, the foundation supports an interdisciplinary workshop program that recruits scientists to develop and apply new technologies; supports basic research on genetic illness through grant and postdoctoral fellowship programs at major universities; and provides research tissue to medical investigators. The Hereditary Disease Foundation is supported and guided by a scientific advisory board and a board of trustees. Educational materials produced by the foundation include newsletters, press releases, workshop reports, and reprints.
