An estimated 1 million people in the U.S. have Parkinson’s; but nearly 30 percent of all clinical trials fail to recruit a single subject, and 85 percent of clinical trials finish late due to recruitment troubles. Which is why Mr. Little’s work has me so fired up. It’s not just because he has helped to develop a voice biomarker for Parkinson’s. Even better, he has figured out how to use a phone – something that nearly everyone carries with them at all times – to create a cheap and easy way for anyone, anywhere to actively participate in the quest for a cure.
