Sage Bionetworks Launches Two Clinical Studies With Apple’s ResearchKit


Today is a big day for Sage Bionetworks and, we hope, an important day for the medical research community. As part of today’s Apple launch of its ResearchKit platform, Sage Bionetworks announces the availability of two iPhone app-based research studies: Parkinson mPower and Share the Journey. These research studies and the ones we hope will follow in the near future will open up a new front in patient-centered medicine.
