Chaired by our Trustee Jane Young, the Research Panel is responsible for helping develop Action for M.E.’s research strategy, overseeing the research strategy and ensuring it’s implemented properly, and monitoring research initiatives in the field of M.E. on behalf of the Board of Trustees to determine their relevance and potential value to people with M.E.
Jane is joined on the Panel by two additional Trustees, our Principal Medical Adviser, an independent research scientist, our CEO, and a minimum of three patient/carer Supporting Members who have research experience (not necessarily in the field of M.E.).
All funding applications we receive are put through a five-stage funding assessment process, which involves:
All the research we fund is agreed by a contract, setting out the rights and obligations of Action for M.E. and the researchers involved.
We currently have no vacancies on our Research Panel.
