We fund biomedical research into ME to create a strategy for cure/treatment


Invest in ME Research is raising funds for a leading edge research strategy to investigate the role of the gut in myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).  The initial £100,000 raised by the patient-driven "Let's do it for ME!" campaign enabled the foundation study to get underway at the University of East Anglia (UEA) with the Institute of Food Research (now Quadram Science) and The Genome Analysis Centre (now Earlham Institute) at Norwich Research Park. A further £100,000 is needed for the research to expand and develop.  This forms the basis of the charity's proposal to develop a UK Centre of Excellence for ME. Will you help Invest in ME Research?

The code to donate by text to 70070 is: MEGR66 (£1-£5 or £10).
