CHDI Foundation: News

Huntington’s Disease in High Definition

Open Science for the HD Research Community

CHDI Foundation has collaborated with UCLA to develop HDinHD (Huntington’s Disease in High-Definition) – an open-science online portal for the HD research community that, in support of preclinical research, aims to accelerate the collaborative development of therapeutics that will provide substantial clinical benefit to those affected by Huntington’s disease.

The portal hosts an extensive collection of well-curated primary scientific datasets, computational models and analyses derived from that data, and provides browsing and interrogation tools to facilitate data exploration and hypothesis generation, including the newly launched HDinHD Explorer tool that enables researchers to discover and explore a wide range of diverse yet interconnected HD-related data. Researchers can also access a newly-released collection of in vivo therapeutic intervention study reports alongside previously published reports. HDinHD aims to catalyze HD research by creating a data environment that synthesizes HD-related scientific data.
