Maureen Hanson, PhD

Dr. Hanson has conducted groundbreaking molecular analysis of many facets of ME/CFS. She analyzes her data with sophistication and insight. It’s exciting to have such an accomplished top-notch scientist working on this disease. Dr. Hanson is the Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Cornell University. She previously was on […]

Mark M. Davis, PhD

As a world-famous immunologist, Dr. Davis’ focus is to develop a broad understanding of the human immune system, particularly what a healthy immune system looks like. The immune system is clearly involved in ME/CFS, and Dr. Davis will be invaluable on the Advisory Board. Dr. Davis is a professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine and […]

Mario R. Capecchi, PhD

Dr. Capecchi is an expert on human genetics, with a focus on the interaction of immune cells in the brain. His current research involves investigating the molecular genetic causes underlying human disorders involving the immune system and the brain. His expertise and insights in this area will be essential in understanding ME/CFS. Dr. Capechhi is […]

Paul Berg, PhD

Dr. Berg is an expert on the chemical processes involved in cellular metabolism. He is noted for being one of the first scientists to show folic acid and B12 are needed for healthy energy production. He is considered one of the fathers of modern genetic engineering. He now pursues public health policy in relation to biomedical research and […]

David S. Bell, MD

Dr. Bell is a widely respected clinician (now retired) who cared for ME/CFS patients in one of the well-known cluster outbreaks in the mid-1980s. Through his practice in Lyndonville, New York, he particularly gained insights into pediatric cases and the course of the disease over many years. His name appears on articles and research studies about […]

Ronald W. Davis, PhD, Director

Dr. Davis’ history of interdisciplinary work, technology development, and attacking previously unsolvable biological problems (both in genetics and traumatology) makes him the ideal scientist to lead a collaborative consortium to solve the mystery of ME/CFS. Additionally, he brings a strong passion to this cause in hopes of finding a cure for his son, who suffers from […]
