Donations Update for NRP Projects

Mainstreaming Finding Funding Facilitating Fasttracking Research into ME

A new 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 £198,000.

A recent paper published due, in part, to funding from Invest in ME Research has appeared.

The human intestinal virome in health and disease

This paper is from Professor Simon Carding, medical student Nadine Davis and Dr Lesley Hoyles from Imperial College London.

IiMER funded Nadine with a bursary for participation in the research at the Centre in Norwich Research Park.

It demonstrates the value of medical students becoming involved in research into ME.

It also shows the value of establishing the Centre hub, where existing contacts to other researchers and research institutes can be utilised to grow the experience and knowledge when researching ME.

Students and researchers from the Centre have been working with Dr Lesley Hoyles at imperial College London.
Dr Hoyles was also at this year's #BRMEC7 Colloquium and #IIMEC12 Conference.

Another paper was produced by the Centre with IiMER-funded students Dr. Navena Navaneetharaja and Dr. Verity Griffiths participating, along with Professors Wileman and Carding.
ME/CFS – New review advocates a spotlight on both bacteria and viruses within the gut

We hope to increase and expand this sort of collaboration.

We continue to fund research based on our business plan to fund continuing research for the next five years. More about this research is available here.

With enough support the UK Centre of Excellence can change the face of research into ME forever.
