    Thank you for an interesting talk Prof Cooper.

    I see you are now collecting Microbiome samples as Biomarkers for analysis.

    Here in the UK I participated in the Zoe health program where poo samples from participants are collected to measure a microbiome profile. I have PD and it occurs to me it may be possible to pull data out of their results for participants who have PD, as the medication participants take is recorded and could be used as a PD identifier. Zoe participants since 2019 are 130,000.

    kind regards Susan
