Now in its eighth year we wish to introduce another level to the Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium in 2018.
For ELEVEN years Invest in ME Research has been organising international biomedical research conferences in Westminster, London. Our choice of venue for #IIMEC12 reflects our commitment to patients, families, carers, researchers and healthcare staff.
Ahead of our upcoming 11th International ME Conference we have a short update here about progress with the project.
We recently met with IFR/UEA researchers to discuss progress of the gut microbiota project.
PhD student Daniel Vipond and Dr Navena Navaneetharaja have been busy collecting samples from severely ill house bound patients - sometimes getting up at 2am! to set out on their journeys on some days. They have sampled 11 severely ill patients so far which is an admirable result as these patients are not easy to access and they have only been collecting these samples for a relatively short time.
Two new PhD students will start in September/October in Norwich Research Park.
One is funded by IiME and another one is a self-funding student who wishes to be part of the research and who is experienced in laboratory work. This student was specifically interested in participating in the ME research which has been started at UEA/IFR.
This underlines our strategy of creating the Centre of Excellence for ME.
A third student position funded by IiME is being advertised later in the summer. Invest in ME are also aiming to keep the MedRes studentships going as these have turned out to be very successful in many ways. These highly motivated medical students are not only very helpful for the research projects but they also become better ME educated doctors as well as influencing their student peers.
Some even stay involved in ME research!
The continuing work and atmosphere at NRP is very encouraging.
Professor Tom Wileman will discuss the project at our forthcoming IIMEC11 International ME Conference on 3rd June in London.
More on the new venue for this year's conference which is kicking off a new decade of Invest in ME Research conferences.
While we are trying to move mountains for research into ME we are not moving far in terms of the venue- still right in the heart of Westminster.
The PhD and intercalating medical students involved in the IiMER funded UK gut microbiota research participated in a panel session at the recent 10th International ME Conference in London on 29th May.
Bharat Harbham, Daniel Vipond and Navena Navaenanarathrama answered questions from the audience about their research and their impressions of ME.
