Research Fund Update for #CofEforME Projects

Finding Facilitating Funding Mainstreaming Energising Doing 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 £196,000.

The achievement of our supporters is rarely recognised and often underestimated or ignored.

What these supporters (patients, carers, family members, friends, philanthropists and people who feel the need to act) have done is to create a foundation of biomedical research which has the potential to transform the landscape for research into ME and give real hope for all of the patients in UK, Europe and elsewhere in the world.

This week IiMER announced plans for our thirteenth international ME conference and our eighth biomedical research into ME Colloquium. Both events are in London.
The chairman's welcome message to the IIMEC13 conference recognises the need for the work the charity does and this is possible due to the great support from supporters.

The Colloquium and Conference will again have representation from the major centres around the world.

The UK Centre of Excellence hub (with virtual links to several UK organisations) is working with partners in other countries.

With five PhDs studentships underway and another scheduled to begin in the autumn , and supplemented by medical students intercalating in their fourth year of study and contributing to the ongoing biomedical research, we have good momentum.
A senior research associate posiition will be filled soon hopefully and we aim to add more weight to the overall research programme. as preparations are ongoing for a UK clinical trial of rituximab and with major European and international collaboration.

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.

This opportunity provides the best possibility for progressing biomedical research into M.E and we invite you to support us in this endeavour.

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

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 the 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.
