There is no question that in the past there has not been enough research into M.E., created by a lack of recognition of the illness, a lack of interest from eminent scientists and a lack of funding. Many studies do not include people who have the most severe form of M.E. and we must continue to advocate for a stronger focus on severe M.E. Studies undertaken often feature small numbers and there has been a lack of biomedical focus.
However, this is beginning to change with strong collaborations developing such as the UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative, of which Action for M.E. is a founding member. We do not have the large-scale funding required to find a cure for M.E. But we do have the vision and determination to drive collaborations to stimulate interest and investment which will eventually lead to change.
Action for M.E. actively supports and invests in biomedical M.E. research. In this section you will find information about:
