Funding Research into ME

Invest in ME Research - Facilitating Fast tracking Research into ME

An update to our previous news item from May.

The charity has been quietly working away these past months looking into new research possibilities and how best to move things forward.

We planned, arranged and carried out the London conference week events in May/June this year - which not only saw the biggest biomedical research Colloquium ever as well as the annual public conference - but also saw the initiation of a new conference to establish a network of young researchers for ME - Thinking the Future for ME.

Invest in ME Research decided to continue to fund PhD student Fane Mensah and his research at UCL.

Our contract with UCL will allow Fane to complete his PhD studentship over the next eighteen months and so fulfil our commitment that we initiated in 2013 to develop this research.

Fane has been working under the supervision of Professor Jo Cambridge and the title of this project is -

Metabolomics And B Cell Metabolism: Pointing The Way To Understanding Disturbed Immune Function In Patients With ME/CFS

The project will look at B cells and other immune cells’s energy requirements in response to different stimuli (in conjunction with metabolomics studies with Christopher Armstrong - both of whom met for the first time at the Invest in ME Research #BRMEC6 Colloquium in 2016).

Professor Cambridge has provided an update for IiMER on Fane's work - click here

Help Us

We welcome support for this undertaking.

For anyone who would like to raise awareness of this research and/or to assist in funding it then we have a donation page set up for this - click on the donate image below

We also welcome support to continue to develop high-quality biomedical research into ME.
The more support we can get the quicker will be the route for understanding and treating this disease properly intothe future.

Other ways to help us continue to develop a strategy of biomedical research into ME are shown in the column at the top right of this page.
All funds are used to progess biomedical research into ME.
Invest in ME Research is run by volunteers - patients or parents of children with ME - with no funds used for salaries.
