Invest in ME Research Scientific Advisory Board

A High Quality Team for High Quality Research

Invest in ME Research supports high quality, biomedical research into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).

In order to ensure that we maintain a strategy of high-quality biomedical research for the future IiMER have decided to form an Advisory Board of top researchers to assist us in planning and building a strategy of high quality biomedical research into ME.

We hope this will allow more focus on research required to find the pathomechanism of the disease.

The first advisory board meeting was held in August 2014 in London.

The meeting discussed what we know about ME so far, the progress of the UCL B cell study and UEA gut microbiota research and the aims of these projects in, for example, identifying sub groups of patients and how the research Invest in ME is funding at the moment can be tied together to complement each other.

There was consensus that the most difficult part for researchers is to find correctly diagnosed patients and they rely on clinicians to do the selection process. It was discussed how there are probably very many low lying patients who have this disease but are outside of the healthcare system - something IiME has pointed out many times in the past - and it would be useful to identify those patients and enable them to be part of research efforts.

Together we are working on establishing the correct and unbiased science to be involved in ME research.

A number of key areas and possible projects have been identified.

We believe our approach to initiating biomedical research into ME is the best way to produce results and feel very strongly that the key elements of a correct and productive strategy of research into ME have been created.
