Fund Update for CofE B-cell/Rituximab Research

Facilitating Fasttracking Research into ME

A new update to our B-cell/rituximab projects being funded at UCL which brings the total raised so far for projects there to £505,000.
After the excellent journalism carried out by BBC Look East (click here) - who have covered the visit by the Norwegian Haukeland University Hospital researchers to Norwich this week - this is more excellent news as we continue to develop plans for the UK rituximab trial in Norwich Research Park and enhance the development of the Centre of Excellence for ME which now has 5 PhDs working on research into ME.

These developments have been thanks to the extraordinary efforts of our supporters.

There is a bright future for the UK Centre of Excellence in Norwich Research Park - with international collaboration now well under way with institutes and universities in Europe and USA. This has been one of the main objectives of Invest in ME Research in building a strategy of biomedical research in Europe.


This collaboration continues following the visit of the Haukeland research team to Norwich at the end of January 2017 to collaborate in preparing the UK rituximab Trial - click here.

Look for more developments and news in the coming month.

We are now funding future phases of the work to build the Centre of Excellence for ME foundations.

Our dedicated microsite for that project with more details is available here.

We welcome support to establish the UK Centre of Excellence for ME.

Ways to help us are shown in the column at the right of our page.

Our mascot, Professor Ldifme, was created by our supporters and indicates the B-cell/rituximab total - posters by LDIFME's Jan Laverick.
