The Michael J. Fox Foundation has launched a new online clinical study, Fox Insight, that aims to gather the world’s largest dataset on the everyday experiences of living with Parkinson’s – and accelerate research as a result.

The initiative means that anyone, anywhere, with internet access can take part in recording all aspects of their personal experience relating to Parkinson’s via a series of questionnaires.

Fox Insight prompts users to update their responses regularly and so hopes to study and measure unprecedented levels of data.
