Our current £200k target for Invest in ME Research is towards a UK clinical treatment trial of faecal microbiome transplantation (FMT) in patients with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) planned to start in 2020 at Quadram Institute, Norwich Research Park. Project description: http://investinme.org/ce-proj3.shtml
This JustGiving page is run by Team Let's Do It for ME, patients aiming to help raise awareness of the Invest in ME Research Centre of Excellence for ME and funds enabling the biomedical research programme to get underway in 2014.
The focus of the research is on the role of infection and immune system responses in ME including autoimmunity, starting with the gut microbiome. All research projects: http://www.investinme.org/ce-projoverview.shtml

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).
