Invest in ME Research
Invest in ME Research
We are an independent UK charity campaigning for bio-medical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M. E. ), as defined by WHO-ICD-10-G93. 3.
We have links nationwide and also internationally via our membership of the European ME Alliance.
Invest in ME Research was set up with the objectives of making a change in how myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is perceived and treated in the media, by health departments and by healthcare professionals.
We aim to do this by identifying the three key areas to concentrate our efforts on in order to raise funding for biomedical research - education, publicising and lobbying.
Invest in ME Research aims to provide the coordination of events and activities in these areas. This will provide the focus and funding to allow biomedical research to be carried out.
Our aim is to bring together like-minded individuals and groups to campaign for research and funding to establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME.
We hope this will lead to the development of a universal diagnostic test that can confirm the presence of ME and, subsequently, medical treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the illness.
We aim to find, facilitate and fund biomedical research into ME.
Invest in ME Research aims to:
- We will set up a UK Centre of Excellence which will provide proper examinations and diagnosis for ME patients and a coordinated strategy of biomedical research into ME in order to find treatment(s).
