The International ME Clinicians Workshop is currently being discussed.
Due to the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic Invest in ME Research is assessing the London Conference Week events.
More information will be available very soon.

For a long time the charity has recognised that part of its strategy for improving the outlook for people with ME must include improving clinical expertise in ME.
We feel this is best enacted via collaborations between knowledgeable clinicians who treat ME patients - sharing knowledge and integrating clinical expertise with a research strategy that closes the loop for translational biomedical research.
The EMECC group came into being following the initiative in USA by Mary and Dr Lucinda Bateman in setting up a USA Clinicians Coalition.

We need to build a bridge in Europe between clinicians and biomedical researchers and use the expertise from knowledgeable clinicians to influence research. This not only will improve the situation for patients it will also facilitate the building of the infrastructure to treat and research ME.
This is coming into being with some of the strategic developments initiated by the charity and these were described in the chairman's welcome message to the IIMEC15 International ME Conference in London on 28th May - click here.

International ME Clinicians Workshop

The IMECC1 conference was supposed to initiate the ME Conference Week in ME Conference Week in London in 2021 .
However, the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted our plans and this event is being rescheduled.

We hope to hold this meeting in the near future leading further such interactions and agreement on common standards and procedures.
