What is HDBuzz?
HDBuzz is the first internet portal for the rapid dissemination of high-quality Huntington's disease (HD) research news to the global community, written in plain language, by HD clinicians and scientists. It covers laboratory and clinical research, with the aim of helping HD people to understand the latest HD science, on their own terms.
All content is disseminated from hdbuzz.net via free syndication to other HD community websites, blogs and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Who Runs HDBuzz?
HDBuzz was founded by Dr Ed Wild and Dr Jeff Carroll, HD scientists in the UK and USA, respectively. We recruited a number of people to help - see the people page. Everyone involved is already active in the HD community, in various capacities.
Is HDBuzz impartial?
We hope so. We go to great lengths to be impartial in our reporting:
- We don't accept funding from any drug company or organization with a vested interest in a particular treatment or technology.
- No funding organization gets any editorial control over HDBuzz content.
- An oversight committee of independent clinicians, scientists and lay community members meets regularly to ensure our content is impartial, scientifically accurate and understandable.
All our authors make financial disclosure statements, which they review whenever they contribute new content.
