Donations Update for #CofEforME Projects
Mainstreaming Finding Funding Facilitating Fasttracking Research into ME
A new update for the research projects being performed and planned at the UK Centre of Excellence for ME hub in Norwich Research Park brings the total raised so far for projects there to £195,000.
Along with the other funds we have established the charity and supporters have raised in excess of £700,000 for biomedical research into ME.
This research funding and the UK Centre of Excellence concept are important for the future of all people suffering from ME, as well as their families.
It offers a long term strategy to address the problems with this disease at a time when establishment organisations are still ignoring the scale and the severity of the disease.
By offering a hub for research into ME for UK and Europe, with international collaboration and better information about the disease, then this will allow serrious and coordinated research to be performed and effective treatments developed and will also provide the means to remove the misinformation which is too often peddled by the media about ME.
We continue to try all means available to extend the research activity in order to form a foundation of biomedical research into ME that will transform European research into this disease.
More about some of this research is available here.
We invite people to support our initiative and make this a European hub for research into ME which will bring about more understanding of the aetiology of the disease and enable treatments to be developed to meet the urgency of the situation.

A year ago A new paper was published by IiMER-funded students at
A Role for the Intestinal Microbiota and Virome in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)?
- a great example of the IiMER strategy of bringing together high-quality biomedical research into ME,
medical students participating in research and international collaboration.
A reminder that our conference DVD from the 12th International ME Conference in London is available.
The DVD contains full presentations from the IIMEC12 conference and may be orderd from this link.
The conference was CPD-accredited and the DVD may be used for training purposes.
