INVEST in ME - The CHARITY
The charity is made up of volunteers - people with ME or parents of children with ME. We have no paid employees and all the work we and our supporters do is entirely without payment.
Every year the charity has organised and hosted an international biomedical research conference in London and this and the associated full conference DVD now attracts researchers, healthcare professionals, clinicians, patient groups and patients from over twenty countries.
The charity is a founder member of the European ME Alliance and has collaborated with international organisations.
Each year the charity organises a research meeting prior to the international conference and this is now attracting researchers from nine countries, representing the latest strategies in biomedical research into ME - click here.
