HSC Endowed Research Chair at Western University
HSC’s generous donors have committed funds to support an endowed chair in Huntington disease research at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. Every dollar raised up to 2.5 million will be matched by our generous partners at Western University. We are incredibly grateful to everyone for these life-changing gifts.
Having this Research Chair position will attract the best talent from around the globe to come to Western University to dedicate their studies to Huntington disease. A Research Chair is the highest accolade bestowed on a researcher or faculty.
Accelerating Advances in Huntington disease Research
The Huntington Society of Canada Research Chair, held at Western University, is a prestigious position that paves the way for groundbreaking discoveries in the field of HD research. The goal is to bring those learnings from the laboratory to the community to make a significant difference in the lives of individuals and families facing the disease.
This Research Chair position could enable breakthroughs in the treatment of Huntington disease, and make a difference around the world for other neurodegenerative diseases.
A Future Full of Huntington disease Research
We are thrilled to be part of this guaranteed continued commitment to Huntington disease research. The Research Chair is paid through the interest gained from the donated funds, which sit untouched, thus guaranteeing a future where such research is safeguarded.
