About EleanorByrne

I joined the PatientsLikeMe team in September 2013  and am very excited to be part of a great team working to improve the lives of patients and caregivers.

My father lived with Parkinson’s Disease for 17 years, so I understand some of the challenges faced by people with life-altering conditions (and by those closest to them). In addition, I served as guardian for two mentally ill adults for almost 20 years. Learning about all their conditions and medications in order make treatment decisions taught me a great deal. And--in one case--allowed me to see some dramatic improvements thanks to advances in the development of antipsychotic medications. For some years now I’ve been interested in supporting the work of those who advance medical research, serving on an Institutional Review Board (since 2011) and participating as a Subject in several Clinical Trials myself (on chronic pain). I know how important it is to get the right treatments to patients quickly. When I learned of the work being done at PatientLikeMe, I knew I wanted to be a part of it!
