It is widely accepted that there has been considerable under-investment into M.E. research by mainstream funders. There is a desperate need for a step-change in the field and, over the past couple of years, we have seen momentum gaining.
Action for M.E. actively supports and invests in M.E. research. In this section you will find information about:
- our research policy, which guides the decisions we make about the projects we fund and support
- our research strategy, which was developed after extensive consultation with more than 1,000 people affected by M.E. This sets out how we plan to achieve our goals by making the most of our opportunities and resources
- our Voice Panel and Scientific Advisory Panel, who play a key role in making research-related decisions
- the research in which we invest and support, thanks to donations made to our Clare Francis Research Fund.
