5th Invest in ME Research International ME Conference 2010

A New Era in ME/CFS Research IIMEC5


The 5th International ME/CFS Conference 2010 took place on 24th May 2010 in London and was attended by presenters and delegates from 18 countries and four continents.
We would like to thank those attending the conference and contributing to another day showing the progress being achieved by biomedical research. The conference had a wonderful and exciting atmosphere which was present during the whole day.

For 2010 the conference concentrated on education of healthcare professionals and left no one in doubt about the serious consequences of this illness.
It also continued to show the promise and real hope of treatments for this illness based on science and proper investigations. We hope that everyone left not only with an enhanced knowledge gained from the conference but also with renewed hope for development of more treatments for myalgic encephalomyelitis.

To the presenters we extend our grateful thanks for the work you are doing. The breadth of knowledge, science and experience regarding ME, as discussed and presented at the conference, is not only impressive but also exciting.

We hope that the many contacts which were established at the conference will continue and we hope to remain in contact with as many of you as possible.

The conference for 2010 showed the urgent need for more funding for biomedical research and the sure progress being made by those committed professionals with a clear strategy for scientific advancement.

Research

IIMER are facilitating a strategy of biomedical research into ME. The charity is funding important high-quality research projects for ME in the UK with international collaboration.
Currently the main hub of research is at Quadram Institute Bioscience and University of East Anglia ) in the Norwich Research Park and we have funded research at UCL. These projects involve a gut microbiota project in Norwich and B cell research in London.

Research Colloquiums

In addition to the International ME Conference the charity also organises an annual International Research Colloquium which attracts researchers from around the world in order to discuss experiences and open up collaborations in order to find answers for this disease.
The charity has also initiated the Thinking the Future network for young/early career researchers and organises an annual conference to bring new talent into the field.

Centre of Excellence for ME

Translational biomedical research - an iterative feedback of information between the basic and clinical research domains in order to accelerate knowledge translation from lab to bedside and back to lab again - allows translation of findings in basic research more quickly and efficiently into medical practice to produce more meaningful health outcomes and facilitate the sharing of repositories and research-based facilities and laboratories. This is the model IiMER are attempting to promote in the development of a UL/European Centre of Excellence for ME based in Norwich.


European Collaboration

Invest in ME Research is one of the founder members of the European ME Alliance (EMEA) – a grouping of charities and patient organisations working together across Europe. Now fifteen European countries collaborating.

European Initiatives

In order to expedite research and clinical expertise for ME the charity has initiated the European ME Clinicians Council and the European ME Research Group to bring together the best European to work together and form credible and productive biomedical research strategies which will provide the best and quickest route for possible treatment(s)/cure(s) for this disease.

Let's Do It For ME

Let's do it for ME! is a patient-driven campaign to raise awareness and vital funds for a UK centre of excellence for translational biomedical ME research, clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment for patients, training and information for healthcare staff, based around the Norwich Research Park in the UK and aiming to work collaboratively with international biomedical researchers.
