I am e4/e4 healthy woman. I added 2 people from my family to the poll.
However, I would like to volunteer on this project. I am a software engineer with over 20 years of experience and knowledge of machine learning, data science, application development. Lately I was thinking of developing a tool like that myself. How can I become a part of the team and work on this project? I live in Silicon Valley. I currently teach computer science and will have time to volunteer.
A warm welcome, Lana!
I noticed that you joined the forum last month, so you may have had time to browse and find lots of features. As a software engineer, you probably also found how open-source software sometimes drives "coders" crazy! Like you, I consider myself a healthy and happy ApoE 4/4 at almost 67.
If you have not had the chance to check out some of the forums and resources of this site, here are some handy links:
We encourage new users to share their own stories of finding out about ApoE 4, their own best practices to enjoy a healthy life and any questions or favorite topics on Our Stories
. Stories like yours, of being a successful software engineer in an often male-dominated field, show that ApoE 4 can be associated with many positive life stories--something that can get overlooked. "How-To" Get the most out of the ApoE4.info website
is our "work-around" resource and time-saver for users.
is a constantly improving resource of in-depth information on topics of interest.
is an easy-to-browse resource with topic headings of topics related to strategies to understand and minimize the effects of ApoE4 that you can begin at a pace that works for you.
As for your central question of how to become involved, it may be most direct to contact the two links Julie G posted in her announcement Prodrome Sciences
and/or Open Cures
We hope you continue to post and welcome your commitment to helping others.
