Huntington’s disease is a genetic condition characterized by the progressive deterioration of nerve cells in the brain, leading to a decline in motor control, cognitive abilities, and emotional stability. With no known cure, understanding the underlying causes of the disease is vital for developing effective therapies.

Israeli researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are pursuing significant strides in understanding Huntington’s disease, a devastating neurodegenerative disorder, by utilizing the power of stem cells.

By harnessing these versatile cells, scientists believe that they could gain crucial insights into the mechanisms behind the disease and, in the long run, find potential avenues for treatment.
