HOPES Podcast

Welcome to the HOPES podcast! 


We share stories of caretakers, doctors, people with Huntington’s Disease, and others in the Huntington’s community.

In our first episode, historian Alice Wexler guides us through the history of Huntington’s Disease.


In our second episode, the HOPES podcast follows Nancy Wexler’s hunt to discover the Huntingtin gene.


In our third episode, the HOPES podcast talks to Dr. Lisa Stanek, Senior Principal Scientist at Sanofi, about her Huntington’s Disease research. Dr. Stanek’s paper discussed in this episode can be found at: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24484067.


The HOPES podcast is back! In episode 4, we spoke with Anna Canoni, Woody & Marjorie Guthrie’s granddaughter, about how Woody’s battle against HD spiraled into the international HD community we have today. From this point forward, we plan on putting out a new episode every month.
