Research conference this week: follow online

March 09, 2020

The sixth annual UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative (CMRC) conference will take place in Bristol tomorrow and Wednesday 11 March.

Due to concerns over Coronavirus (COVID-19), a number of speakers have decided to not travel. This is to protect themselves and others at the conference. We have taken steps to ensure they can still contribute to the programme and scientists will still be presenting their research via weblink, as well as taking questions.

Dr Dan Peterson is the only original speaker unable to take part, given his key role in containing Coronavirus (COVID-19) where he is based in Nevada. We are grateful to Dr Bhupesh Prusty, University of Wuerzburg, for stepping into take his place, presenting on infectious etiology behind mitochondrial architecture and cell danger response in M.E., by weblink, on Wednesday.

For an up to date programme of speakers please visit our CMRC page at

We will ensure films of these and other presentations are available as soon as possible after the event; we will also be live tweeting so please check out our Twitter feed for updates, following the #CMRC2020 hashtag.
