#BRMEC13 is a closed meeting intended for biomedical researchers to collaborate, share ideas and knowledge about ME, or other research areas that will help in determining the pathophysiology of ME.
These are guidelines for submitting abstracts for consideration at the Colloquium, or at the Young EMERG Workshop (SPARK ME) for early career researchers.

Submission Guidelines:

Scope: Submit abstracts on unpublished or ongoing biomedical research related to myalgic encephalomyelitis, or in a field that would be of relevance to researchers involved in research into ME, focusing on one of the following topics:

  • Infection
  • Nervous System
  • Immune System
  • Metabolism
  • Epigenomes and Transcriptomes
  • Physiology

Format: Concise abstracts (max 300 words) with sections: Background/Objective, Methods, Results, Conclusion.

Please be aware of the theme of the Colloquium and/or SPARK ME Workshop when submitting abstracts. Abstracts received that are not considered relevant for the themes of these events may not be considered.
