Thank you for visiting our page describing the BIG Cause efforts to create a UK/International hub for biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
ME is recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and by the UK government as a chronic neurological illness.

Use this link to go to the Centre of Excellence for ME microsite which describes our efforts to establish this facility in Europe.

Invest in ME Research aim to facilitate and initiate biomedical research into ME and improve education and awareness of the disease.

This Opportunity

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 eleven annual international biomedical research conferences and six international biomedical research colloquiums 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 and 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.
