Professor Sarah Tabrizi, Director of UCL’s Huntington’s Disease Centre, recently gave a keynote speech at Google’s Zeitgeist event. Zeitgeist events are high-profile gatherings, attended by some of the finest global leaders and thinkers. The theme of this year’s event was ‘The Next Giant Leap’ and Professor Tabrizi’s speech focused on how research on a genetic dementia, like Huntington’s disease, may not only offer hope to those who carry the Huntington’s gene, but also unlock treatments for other more complex dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease. The event, which was attended by approximately 200 people and available to stream online, was an excellent opportunity to bring significant attention to Huntington’s disease and the research being conducted by Professor Tabrizi and the HD Centre.
