Driving research of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS),
Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Long COVID.

Multi-Omics Study of ME/CFS (MAESTRO)

The primary goal of this project is to complete our comprehensive analysis of the genome, methylome, miRnome, and their interactions in order to fill the gaps in our understanding of ME/CFS pathophysiology and to identify clinically useful biomarkers.

Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1)

Researchers are actively working to understand the role of Thrombospondin-1, an important biomarker, in those with ME/CFS.

Stress-Activated MicroRNAs

Studying microRNAs could help to bridge the conceptual gap between genetic predisposition and environmental factors causing ME/CFS or exacerbating specific symptoms.

Deep Proteome and Metabolome Profiling

Decode the molecular mechanisms underlying ME/CFS and contributing to specific symptoms with a particular emphasis of post-exertional malaise (PEM). This includes deep phenotyping of ME patients and global proteomic/metabolomics plasma profiling of ME..
