Centre of Excellence for ME
Thank you for visiting our page describing the BIG Cause efforts to create a UK/International hub for biomedical research
into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME - also referred to as ME/CFS).
ME is recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and by the UK government as a chronic neurological illness.

A Strategy for Research, Treatment and Advocacy for ME
Invest in ME Research has been facilitating research collaboration between individuals and organisations and are funding major research in the UK.
The charity's success in arranging fifteen annual international biomedical research conferences and ten international biomedical research colloquiums and initiating an international young/early career research network demonstrates its determination and commitment to find a cause or causes for this devastating disease.
IiMER has European connections and originated and facilitated the formation of the European ME Research Group (EMERG) and and the European ME Clinicians Council (EMECC) and facilitates collaborative links to other researchers and institutes in Europe and Australia and USA.
The foundations are already in place to advance science and provide the promise of better treatment and possible restoration of function and lives back to a section of the community who have received very little help in the past.
Please help us to find the cause of this disease and develop effective treatments to permit patients to regain their lives.
