Dr Paul Wicks, Vice President of Innovation at PatientsLikeMe

PatientsLikeMe is an online community for people living with medical conditions. Specialising in the conduct of clinical research using the Internet, Paul is responsible for shaping the scientific validity of the PatientsLikeMe platform and generating insights from personal health data shared by members. This sharing of online medical data has lead to over 60 studies including a patient-led observational trial of lithium in ALS, digital tools to develop patient-reported outcome measures, a “dose-response” curve for the benefits of friendship between patients, and methods for patient-centered clinical trial design. In 2011 he was awarded MIT Technology Review’s TR35 “Humanitarian of the Year” award and was recognized as a TED Fellow in 2012.
