ME Research UK
Quite simply biomedical research into ME/CFS will not happen without active supporters.
ME Research UK has the principal aim of commissioning and funding biomedical investigation into the causes, consequences and treatment of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (popularly known as M.E.) This debilitating illness affects between 120,000 and 240,000 people in the UK, but is neither well understood nor, in many cases, properly recognised. Since 2000, we have awarded grants totalling over £1million to universities in the UK and overseas for 35 specific scientific studies. We receive no governmental or Lottery funding and rely solely on supporters for funding.
