"Any physician will tell you that you learn a lot more from talking to patients than you do from reading any kind of text book."
These are the words of leading US M.E. researcher Dr Avindra Nath, speaking earlier this year about the M.E. research project he is leading at the National Institutes of Health. He will give an update on the project today when he opens the fourth annual UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative science conference.
Along with early-career and experienced researchers, people with M.E., carers and advocates will be attending the event in Bristol, which is being filmed by Action for M.E. Other speakers on the programme for day one of the conference include Prof Don Staines, Griffith University; and Dr Peter Rowe, John Hopkins Centre for Children.
