Dr. X. William Yang, associate professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute and a member of the Brain Research Institute, appeared May 10 in an NBC Nightly News segment about his identification of a molecular switch that prevents the development of Huntington’s disease in mice. Scientific correspondent Robert Bazell explored how the UCLA discovery may show similar promise in people suffering from the devastating genetic disorder. The report also aired on four NBC affiliates.
