The UK’s first biobank for M.E., funded by Action for M.E., the ME Association, ME Research UK and a private donor, stores blood samples from clinically well-characterised cases of M.E./CFS and healthy controls.

This means that, in the long-term, the research community will have access to a well-characterised cohort of patients with biological, clinical and laboratory data attached.

The biobank was launched in August 2011, and co-funded by Action for M.E. until March 2014. Housed at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and managed by the CURE-ME team, it has funds secured to continue until 2016.
