August 18, 2017
The UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative is delighted to announce that Prof Jose Montoya will present his recent findings, linking M.E. to variations in the immune system, at its conference in Bristol next month.
"I am very excited to attend the CMRC conference and welcome the chance to talk about our research with other researchers from around the world,” says Prof Montoya, who has a assembled a world-class research team at Stanford University, committed to investigating the connection between M.E. and infection or immune dysfunction.
“M.E./CFS can turn a life of productive activity into one of dependency and desolation, and it is only through collaboration that we can challenge the horrors of this very real disease and improve lives for the thousands of patients living with it on a daily basis.”
Prof Montoya will give the Anne Faulkner Memorial Lecture on the second day of the conference, following presentations on day one by Dr Avindra Nath, National Institutes of Health; and Prof Don Staines, Griffith University.
The CMRC conference takes place Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 September at the Future Inns, Bristol. Both days are open to anyone with an interest in M.E. You can find out more and/or book your place now on the CMRC conference website.
