On Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 March the UK CFS and M.E. Research Collaborative (CMRC) held its annual conference in Bristol. Despite several international speakers being unable to travel due to Covid-19, the conference was well attended and participants heard some of the latest ground-breaking research and collaborations from across the world.
Speakers at the conference included Prof Chris Ponting, who spoke on the Biomedical Partnership application for funding and his work on whether T cell clonality being a M.E./CFS biomarker, and also Dr Michael VanElzakker who joined via web-link from Massachusetts. Dr VanElzakker spoke on some of the history of M.E. and his work on abnormal cerebrovascular reactivity among people with the condition. You can see a full list of speakers on the conference programme which is still available on our website.
We have uploaded the videos of the presentations onto our Youtube Channel and will be taking steps to live-stream the next conference to enable people at home to watch and participate in the discussions. We will also be producing a conference report which will be available on our website.
