And with COVID-19 top of mind, we are funding a
Post COVID-19 to ME/CFS Research Study:
The current COVID-19 pandemic offers an unprecedented opportunity to understand how a viral infection may convert to ME/CFS in some patients. The five ME/CFS Collaborative Centers have begun a unique, extensive, in-depth longitudinal molecular study following COVID-19 patients to determine the pathways involved in the maintenance of long-term symptoms in some patients, possibly converting to ME/CFS. They seek to learn about these pathways to develop biomarkers, novel drug targets, and new treatment and prevention strategies.
This is your last chance in 2020 to give the gift of hope
and invest in groundbreaking research
