Jamie Heywood

Chairman PatientsLikeMe

jamieheywoodJamie founded PatientslikeMe with brother Ben and friend Jeff Cole when brother Stephen was suffering from ALS. The family’s remarkable story was captured in the documentary So Much So Fast. PatientslikeMe has since expanded from ALS to many other conditions, and now has over 45,000 patients sharing information in a radically open way. Another new idea, the Open Research Exchange platform, which Jamie will discuss with us today.
