Despite some recent happenings in the news, we’re here to assure you that health 2.0 is still very much alive. Here’s our recent announcement about our new partnership with 23andMe.
PatientsLikeMe, the first community-based personalized medicine platform for people with life-changing conditions, and 23andMe, the world’s leading personal genomics company, announce a partnership today to help people with Parkinson’s disease. PatientsLikeMe is teaming with 23andMe on its effort to recruit 10,000 people with Parkinson’s for a massive study of the disease, and give patients a way to learn more about their personal genetics.
“Today, technology is moving faster than the research establishment,” says James Heywood, co-founder and chairman of PatientsLikeMe. “We are excited to see what happens when you give patients the ability to see variations of their disease and compare it to their own, while enabling them to easily define their personal genomics.”
