Research team

At its core, PatientsLikeMe is a clinical research platform that can provide real-world, real-time insight into thousands of diseases and conditions. Our research professionals have completed studies with real-world data that have helped refute and pre-empt traditional randomized clinical trials, modeled Parkinson's Disease, validated epilepsy quality measures, shed new light on medication adherence in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and organ transplants, and added validated patient reported outcomes in psoriasis, autism and MS research.
