Good news to start the year, Invest in ME Research (IiMER) posted an update to their gut microbiota and related projects being performed at the UK Centre of Excellence for ME in Norwich Research Park due to some very kind donations to their research being carried out in Norwich Research Park at the Instiute of Food Research (IFR) and University of East Anglia (UEA). They wrote –
We have recently received a wonderful donation from the Freemasons in Norwich and from a Ladies Sunday Lunch raffle in Norwich.
IiMER have decided to supplement this with funds from our biomedical research funds in order to make the total up to £2000.
This means that the total we have now raised for past, current and planned projects at UEA/IFR Centre of Excellence for ME is £181,000.
The cheques were presented at a dinner just before Christmas in Norwich.
Collecting the donations on behalf of Invest in ME Research were Dr Ian Gibson, Professor Simon Carding and Professor Tom Wileman, from IFR/UEA.
At the dinner Dr Gibson and Professors Carding and Wileman spoke of the charity and the research into ME being undertaken at UEA and IFR.
More details of this wil be availble from the Institute of Food Research (IFR) site soon.
We are indebted to the Masons and the Ladies for this wonderful gesture.
