Headshot of Dr. Cara O'NeillCure Sanfilippo Foundation’s Chief Science Officer Cara O’Neill, MD, FAAP, is at the WORLD Symposium 2020 in Orlando, FL, this week to make an important presentation about an innovative way to approach recording and measuring disease hallmarks post-gene therapy using video-based technology. 

The PROVide Study uses video capture technology to monitor daily living, motor skills, and events, such as details regarding seizure frequency and length, sleep, stooling, and irritability/agitation. An additional layer of innovation in this study is the use of wearable devices to record additional data.

Her presentation was included in a recent Yahoo! Finance article.

Additionally, O’Neill is being awarded the Patient Advocate Leader of the Year at the WORLD Symposium. An honor that recognizes an individual for their direct contribution to lives of patients and families dealing with a lysosomal disease through disease awareness and education, community mobilization, non-profit development and/or good governance activities, patient care, and support programs.
