Research Fund Update for #CofEforME Projects

Finding, Facilitating Funding Biomedical Research into ME

An update to our gut microbiota and related projects being performed at the UK Centre of Excellence for ME in Norwich Research Park brings the total raised so far for projects there to £186,000.

Thanks to our supporters maintaining the momentum in establishing this major UK and European hub for research into ME - joining together the research we have initiated at UEA/IFR, UCL and Oxford and the international links established with European and US institutes.

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

And we are pleased to announce that we are discussing adding another PhD student to the UK Centre of Excellence for ME team to begin research in the autumn of 2017.

More about the research projects within the Research Park is available here. and details of the project leading to the UK rituximab cklinical trial are here.

A foundation of biomedical research is now established for substantial and continuing research into this disease which is blighting the lives of so many patients and their families around the world. Preparations are also underway for a UK clinical trial of rituximab and with major European and international collaboration.

This opportunity provides the best possibility for progressing biomedical research into M.E

With enough support we can achieve this and make lasting progress in researching and treating this disease.

Please help us raise funds and awareness for this. Join our CofEforME C-Selfie support campaign - click here

For major funders and philanthropists this is an opportunity to resolve a major issue and give back the lives to so many people.

Invest in ME Research is a charity committed to bringing high-quality biomedical research to discover the aetiology and produce treatments for this disease in the quickest time-frame possible.

Please help us with this objective.

Our mascot, Professor Ldifme, was created by our supporters - this one being a festive version.

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

The charity is preparing for its 2017 2-day Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium 7 (our annual seventh research colloquium) and the 12th International ME Conference 2017 - both events in London.

With major institutes in attendance from around the world, and with both NIH and CDC participating, these events will further help progress biomedical research into this disease.
