Dr. Fei Wang: Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative Data Challenge

Dr. Fei Wang, an assistant professor of healthcare policy and research, won the Michael J. Fox Foundation Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative Data Challenge. The foundation, which sponsors the landmark biomarkers PPMI study, asked data analysts to provide a model of either Parkinson's disease subtypes or baseline predictors of progression using PPMI data. Dr. Wang, who will receive $25,000 furnished by MJFF and supported in part by GE Healthcare, has outlined three Parkinson’s subgroups that may help physicians to better characterize patients based on their clinical symptoms.
