Another Great Biomedical Research Colloquium BRMEC10
2 - 3 June 2021
BRMEC10 - Ten Years of Forming International Collaboration
The 10th Biomedical Research into ME Research Colloquium is taking place on 2 - 3 June 2021.
As mentioned previously (see here) due to the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the constraints of the pandemic and the disruption caused to research and schedules then Invest in ME Research has decided that it is not possible to stage a physical event in London, as has been the case for all previous Colloquiums.
However, we will still arrange for a two-day virtual international research meeting.
More information is given below and will be augmented over the next weeks.
Bringing Researchers Together
BRMEC10 Colloquium - New format, New ideas
A new format for the Colloquium is being made this year due to the pandemic. A virtual meeting replaces the annual physical meeting and a new approach is planned to bring forward discussions and assist in future research. We hope this will aid in linking the jigsaw pieces together.
In replacing the annual London event with a a virtual event we are using the different opportunities
presented by this format to bring forward new ideas to stimulate discussions between researchers.
Every Colloquium has aimed to improve understanding, collaboration and cooperation.
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 added to the agenda.
For BRMEC10 we will present a new approach and a new format to the meeting in order to try to make a step-change in thinking and aid everyone
Working with Invest in ME Research will be the European ME Research Group (EMERG) who have been tasked with forming the agenda.
A number of hypotheses will be proposed concerning ME - all leading back to the aetiology of the disease.
This will be augmented by reference to long covid.
The hypotheses will be discussed by researchers.
Participants at #BRMEC10
We again hope to have representation from most of the main biomedical research initiatives occurring throughout the world who had previously
accepted invitations and had planned to come to London for May 2021.
Past BRMEC Colloquiums
The Invest in ME Research public Conferences began in 2006 – providing a platform for biomedical research into ME and to allow
researchers, clinicians and patients to come together and share experiences and knowledge
In 2011 the charity decided to create a forum for researchers – a place where international researchers could meet and discuss and collaborate.
This formed our Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium – bringing together the best biomedical research from around the world and facilitate the sharing of knowledge and develop ideas around biomedical research into ME - always in the heart of London.
This would create a family of international researchers who could work together for the benfir of people with ME.
The Colloquiums continue to grow in size every year and now regularly attract researchers from fifteen countries and now sees the largest gathering of the world's biomedical researchers for ME in London with excellent opportunities for networking amongst peers.
