London Business School are looking to recruit a number of people for their study looking at views around genetic testing for Huntington's disease.

About the study

The purpose of this research study is to understand people’s attitudes toward taking a predictive genetic test for Huntington’s disease and the psychological consequences of testing on an individual’s well-being. Specifically, we are interested in comparing the well-being of individuals who have versus have not taken a genetic test before developing Huntington's disease symptoms. 

This study has been created by London Business School.

They would like to donate £2 for each individual who completes the survey within one month to the Huntington’s Disease Association.

What does it involve?

This study is a 5–10 minute online survey which contains several questions that assess individuals’ psychological well-being. Participants will also be asked to answer these questions and report whether they have taken a genetic test and when they started developing Huntington's symptoms.

Who can take part?

You can get involved in the study if you fit the following criteria:

  • Gene positive
  • Early onset of symptoms
  • Any age
