The Human Genome Project is responsible for therapies for a wide range of diseases, including inherited eye diseases, neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's disorders, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and non-inherited diseases such as cancer and HIV. It can also assist with common conditions in older age include hearing loss, cataracts and refractive errors in eyes, back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, diabetes, depression, dementia (including Alzheimer's Disease) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
If necessary, put your disease in with a group of similar one eg Neurodegenerative, Cardiovascular, Respiratory or Cancer (those with a genetic connection, eg breast cancer).
