Invest in ME is an independent UK charity campaigning for bio-medical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) (Between 150,000 and 250,000 people in the UK have ME.) This is a fairly new charity, but they have a big vision: to implement a national strategy in the UK to advance biomedical research into the causes, pathology and epidemiology of ME, eventually leading to biomarkers, medical treatments, and a cure.

To further that goal, Invest in ME hosts an annual international conference featuring clinicians and researchers from all over the world, as well as international patient advocacy groups and journalists. This year’s conference will be held on May 31 in London and includes Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik of Bond University; Prof. Olav Mella and Dr Oystein Fluge of the Norwegian Rituximab study; Dr Andreas Kogelnik of the Open Medicine Institute and Dr Mady Hornig.
 
Invest in ME is also raising funds to establish a UK and European Centre of Excellence for translational biomedical ME research. The center would not only focus on research, but would include a strong clinical component, diagnosing and treating for patients, as well as training healthcare providers. Invest in ME has already raised $244,400 of the $255,000 they will need to start their first research project.

Please vote now to help raise funds for this worthy charity. Voting ends on April 30th.
