LATEST: Thanks and best wishes to everyone supporting the Invest in ME Research Christmas / New Year Funding Appeal: http://investinme.org/18CNYtree1.shtml
The Let's Do It for ME campaign aims to help raise awareness of the Invest in ME Research Centre of Excellence for ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and funds for the biomedical research programme, underway since 2013.
The Centre hub is at brand new Quadram Institute at world-renowned Norwich Research Park and other researchers involved are currently based in London, Surrey, Oxford, Cambridge and other countries.
The focus of the research is on the role of infection and immune system responses in ME including autoimmunity starting with the gut and also B-cells.
See the research projects at investinme.org/ce-projoverview.
Please help the charity raise another £200k to ensure the research continues until diagnostic tests and medical treatments are available for this otherwise chronic and life-destroying disease.
We aim to use this page to keep a running total until the £1,000,000 target is reached so thank you if you have your own fundraising pages for the Invest in ME Research Centre of Excellence for ME.
Invest in ME Research is an independent UK charity finding, funding and facilitating a strategy of biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME or ME/CFS).The charity is run by volunteers - patients or parents of children with ME - with no paid staff. Overheads are kept to a minimum and all funds raised to go to promoting education of, and funding for biomedical research into, ME. Our efforts are focused on setting up a UK Centre of Excellence for ME which will provide proper examinations, diagnosis and in time treatment(s)/cure(s).
