ME @ German Institute of Human Nutrition
Mainstreaming Finding Funding Facilitating Fasttracking Research into ME
Included here are some pictures from PhD students at the UK Centre of Excellence presenting at the recent
event in Berlin.
as part of their student knowledge exchange trip.
Katharine Seton and Fiona Newberry attended the meeting.
Katharine's presentation was entitled
"Immune reactivity to enterobacteria in ME/CFS".
Fiona's presentation was entitled
"Investigating the intestinal virile in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome".
Katharine and Fiona presented on Monday 11th September 2017.
This is a great example where knowledge about ME can be spread to other areas and to other researchers and enables strong international links to be established which will benefit people with ME and their families.
Invest in ME Research research at the Centre hub is progressing.
Details of Invest in ME Research funded research trial at Centre of Excellence hub - the severe ME study - we published here - http://www.investinme.org/ce-news-1709-02.shtml
We continue to fund research based on our business plan which covers the next five years. More about the research is available here.

Our mascot, Professor Ldifme, was created by Jan Laverick from the Let's Do It For ME team.
Ways to help us are shown in the column at the right of our page.
Our 8th International Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium
for 2018 has been announced - http://www.investinme.eu/BRMEC%20Colloquiums.shtml#brmec8
We hope for another wonderful event full of international collaboration and progress.
Helping to Energise ME Research
Below are ways to help the charity fund the research and the work that is carried out by the charity - and to influence and inform, not just by words but by actions.
Our aim is to develop and sustain high-quality biomedical research into ME within a Centre of Excellence hub and with European collaboration with other European institutes. This will lead to fundamental science being performed leading to multi-site clinical trials, improvement in standards and data analysis, the development of treatments, improvement of diagnosis and a more informed view of this disease amongst the media and the public.
Additionally, this strategy will improve education amongst clinicians and encourage more researchers to become involved in this disease.
Centre of Excellence
Funding of a UK/European Centre for research and European collaboration
For the biomedical research fund to fund new research projects at the Centre or connected
For education of medical students,bursaries for young/ECR researchers and clinical fellowships for GPs
