Welcome to IiMER Research Blog!

Invest in ME Research have created a page on their Centre of Excellence website for blogs by researchers funded by the charity to describe what they are doing, what experiences they have, what they think of research into ME, what they hope to achieve – and allow more communication with patients and the public.

IiMER hope this will help more people understand ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and the possibilities and opportunities which are available and being created by a strategy of biomedical research into the disease. You can comment on the individual blogs if logged in via Disqus, Facebook, Twitter or Google.

Kindly kicking off the new Research Blog is Katharine Seton, now in the second year of her PhD and based at Quadram Institute, the hub of the Invest in ME Research Centre of Excellence for ME.

Katharine describes her role in the research programme, the study she is currently focussing on, and explains why she has a personal investment and interest in ME research. Click here to read, comment, share: “Defining autoimmune aspects of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)”.

I aspire to help find a cure for ME … so watch this space!

Katharine was among the PhD students speaking about their work at the charity’s 12th international biomedical research conference in London in June. Their presentations are on the IIMEC12 DVD available here.

Fane Mensah, currently doing his PhD at UCL, also presented at IIMEC12.
The Research Blog includes articles by Fane that were previously published by IiMER as newsletters, so if you missed these, or would like to comment, they are ME/CFS – Through The Eyes of a Young Researcher (first posted January 2015) and Research News from Fane Mensah (first posted February 2017).
