Advancing Understanding of ME: Bridging Research and Clinical Treatment


Overview

We are pleased to announce the sixteenth public international conference hosted by the UK charity Invest in ME Research, #IIMEC16 - The 16th Invest in ME Research International ME Conference 2024.
Taking place on the 28th of June 2024, this prestigious event will be held at the renowned Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton Hall. Building on the foundation of our two-day researcher colloquium, IIMEC16 continues our mission of bringing research and clinical expertise to bear on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), setting the stage for impactful advancements in the field.

Updates on research into ME from around the world will also be given - as well as input from the previous two days of the BRMEC13 closed researchers Colloquium.

With developments around research into Long Covid and with the similarities of some symptoms to those experienced by people with ME then this topic will be also included as a central component of the agenda.
