ME Public Engagement Event
Invest in ME Research and The Quadram Institute are arranging a Public Engagement Event in Norwich on 7th February 2020.
The event will be with Professor Simon Carding and others associated with the research being funded by Invest in ME Research, and particular emphasis will be put on the planned clinical trial being set up at Quadram.
The Quadram Institute is a new centre for microbiome research on the Norwich Research Park with a mission to deliver healthier lives through innovation in gut health, microbiology and food.
IiMER and Quadram are keen to discuss the planned research with patients and carers, and wish to get views and additional insights to help us shape our future research. We will be discussing logistics for this meeting and will be meeting in the New Year to plan the event.
So we are inviting patients, carers and supporters to send us any input to the meeting.
If you have specific issues or questions that you feel should be addressed at the public meeting then we are now collecting this information in order to plan the agenda.
