Research Fund Update for #CofEforME Projects

Finding Facilitating Funding Mainstreaming Energising Doing Biomedical Research into ME

An update to our gut microbiota and related projects being performed at the UK Centre of Excellence for ME in Norwich Research Park brings the total raised so far for projects there to £189,000.

The achievement of our supporters is so often underestimated or ignored.

What these supporters have done is to create a foundation of biomedical research which has the potential to transform the landscape for research into ME and give real hope for all of the patients in UK, Europe and elsewhere in the world.

As IiMER prepare for a week of international biomedical research meetings in London one can reflect of the amazing progress made.

The Colloquium and Conference will have representation from the major centres around the world and also from CDC and NIH.

The UK Centre of Excellence (with virtual links to several UK organisations) is working with partners in other countries.

With five PhDs studentships funded/ongoing and another scheduled to begin in the autumn , and supplemented by medical students intercalating in their fourth year of study and contributing to the ongoing biomedical research, we have good momentum.
We also wish to add post-doc positions to add more weight to the overall research programme.
Preparations are also underway for a UK clinical trial of rituximab and with major European and international collaboration.

More about the research projects within the Research Park is available here. and details of the project leading to the UK rituximab cklinical trial are here.

A foundation of biomedical research is now established for substantial and continuing research into this disease which is blighting the lives of so many patients and their families around the world.

This opportunity provides the best possibility for progressing biomedical research into M.E and we invite you to support us in this endeavour.

With enough support we can achieve this and make lasting progress in researching and treating this disease.

For major funders and philanthropists this is an opportunity to resolve a major issue and give back the lives to so many people.

Invest in ME Research is a charity committed to bringing high-quality biomedical research to discover the aetiology and produce treatments for this disease in the quickest time-frame possible.

Please help us with this objective.
