Invest in ME Research are very proud to announce that Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) has very generously made a significant donation to
support Invest in ME Research with administrative costs in arranging the
14th International ME Conference in London in May.
IiMER chairman Kathleen McCall writes - " This wonderful generosity cements further the supportive relationship between IiMER and OMF.
For the 2019 conference IiMER had already allocated a display table for OMF in the Great Hall (show image).
This year we have also invited many researchers to speak who are also involved in OMF-funded research projects.
Dr Ron Tompkins from Harvard will be speaking at Coloquium and Conference. Knowing that Dr Tompkins is working with researchers in Britain we have already pre-empted the meeting and invited those researchers from Nottingham and Birmingham universities to the Colloquium - thus helping them in their research but also facilitating discussion sfor Dr Tompkins.
Linda Tannenbaum Linda Tannenbaum, Founder & CEO/President of Open Medicine Foundation (OMF).from OMF is no stranger to IiMER conferences. Linda has been invited to all of our Colloquium and Conference events over the last 5 years and many of the collaborations with OMF researchers have been made at the IiMER events.
IiMER recognised early on the potential contribution that OMF would be making to research into ME when we invited Linda to give one of our earlier pre-conference dinner presentations in 2013.
This was on our DVD from the conference and we have now made this available on our You Tub channel - see below.
Thank you again OMF for your support for Invest in ME Research and for your work for people with ME"
