Paul has dedicated much of his career to patient-centric research and building patient communities, particularly in rare disease. Paul has spent 17 years in the digital health and online community space, 13 of which were spent as a senior leader at PatientsLikeMe. In his role as R&D director and later VP of Innovation at PatientsLikeMe, Paul and his team were one of the first groups to recognise the incredible potential to improve patient lives by allowing them to connect with one another online, and contribute to new research on their own terms.
Paul has published over 110+ peer-reviewed papers primarily in neurology and the science of patient reported outcomes, was scientific lead on industry partnerships, and has been a visible thought leader in the wider community.
As part of the Sano team, Paul will be helping develop the platform to help users to manage and understand their genetic and health data, and to join exciting new research in precision medicine.
