OMF’s StudyME, powered by StudyPages, is a recruitment tool to connect individuals interested in participating in research studies with the researchers conducting them.
Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for individuals affected by ME/CFS, Long Covid, Fibromyalgia, and other post-infection illnesses by expediting research in these areas and increasing awareness by showing how many people are waiting for a cure.
Signing up is easy and takes less than five minutes. All you need to do is provide your contact details and specify your areas of interest. Once you’ve done this, we’ll send you email notifications whenever there are research opportunities that align with your interests to potentially participate in surveys, laboratory studies, or treatment trials.
Researchers are interested in individuals suffering from specific illnesses as well as healthy individuals who can act as “controls” or reference points. Thus, even if you are in good health, we encourage you to sign up for OMF’s StudyME to support patient communities and promote scientific research.
Please note that each study will have specific eligibility criteria set by the researchers themselves. Our role is simply to connect interested participants with research teams to accelerate progress in these areas.
No personal medical information is required! All that is needed is your contact information and areas of research interest, and you’re all set. Contact StudyME@omf.ngo with questions.

Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMFCA and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
OMFCA sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.
