New Apple ResearchKit studies target autism, melanoma, epilepsy
October 15, 2015
ResearchKit’s six-month-old universe is expanding again, thanks to three new healthcare projects that make use of the iPhone and Apple Watch.
Apple’s enterprise-facing app platform is being used by researchers at Duke University, Johns Hopkins and the Oregon Health & Science University in new studies focused on autism, epilepsy and melanoma.
Duke University and Duke Health are partnering with China’s Peking University in “Autism & Beyond,” a study targeting parents of autistic children. The study uses the iPhone’s camera to measure a child’s reaction to videos played on the phone.
