A Centre of Excellence for ME
UK charity Invest in ME Research is working to establish a UK and European Centre of Excellence for ME – a centre which would exist to bring discovery, knowledge, and effective treatments to patients with ME and possibly, in future, other illnesses that are caused by acquired dysregulation of both the immune system and the nervous system.
The Centre would become a Centre of Excellence in the treatment of ME in Europe and would collaborate with researchers, physicians and healthcare staff from around the UK and Europe and North America and Australasia.
It will also allow collaboration with other Centres of Excellence in other countries as the concept develops.

efforts to establish this facility in Europe.
Invest in ME Research aims to facilitate and initiate biomedical research into ME and improve education and awareness of the disease.

Our Current Funded Research and Projects
The following is a list of our current research project areas which the charity has been funding.
Invest in ME Research has been facilitating research collaboration between individuals and organisations and are funding major research in the UK.
The charity's success in arranging fifteen annual international biomedical research conferences and ten international biomedical research colloquiums and initiating an international young/early career research betwork demonstrates its determination and commitment to find a cause or causes for this devastating disease.
IiMER has European connections and originated and facilitated the formation of the European ME Research Group (EMERG) and and the European ME Clinicians Council (EMECC) and facilitates collaborative links to other researchers and institutes in Europe and Australia and USA.
The foundations are therefore already in place to advance science and provide the promise of better treatment and possible restoration of function and lives back to a section of the community who have received very little help in the past.
Please help us to find the cause of this disease and develop effective treatments to permit patients to regain their lives.
