Join us to hear fresh perspectives from keynote speaker Jamie Heywood—an innovator driving the application of artificial intelligence and digital biology to understand health, disease, and aging—a future of truly personalized medicine.
As chairman of PatientsLikeMe, Heywood provides the scientific vision and architecture for its patient-centered medical platform. Named one of “15 companies that will change the world” by CNN Money, PatientsLikeMe is a personalized research and peer care platform that allows patients to share in-depth information on treatments, symptoms, and outcomes. This novel open model allows clinicians, providers, and the pharmaceutical industry to better understand diseases and the patient experience. Patients improve their care while actively partnering with industry to accelerate and influence the development of new treatments and biomarkers.
Heywood’s work has been the subject of His Brother’s Keeper, a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jonathan Weiner, and So Much So Fast, a Sundance award-winning documentary. Heywood co-founded his company in 2004 with his brother, Benjamin, and friend, Jeff Cole.
