Let’s Do it for ME is a patient-driven campaign launched in 2011 in support of the proposal by UK charity Invest in ME Research to establish a centre of excellence for biomedical research and patient care based in East Anglia, and in collaboration with other leading UK and international biomedical researchers.
We help to raise funds for the biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis that the charity is organising and/or funding. Our crowdfunding for specific ME research is the first of its kind in UK and has inspired similar projects in Europe and USA. We have helped to raise over £800,000 enabling the biomedical research strategy to get underway, and we are aiming for £1,000,000.
The current focus of the research is on the role of the immune system, including infection and autoimmunity. The research projects are described here: investinme.org/ce-projoverview.shtml
There is also a scheme for medical students to be directly involved in biomedical research by intercalating in their fourth year: investinme.org/ce-ms-studs.shtml
Invest in ME Research is also renowned for their international conference events, which have grown year on year since the first in 2006, bringing patients and carers together with doctors and scientists and others to galvanise change in the way that ME is researched and treated across the world. Sponsorship is welcome: investinme.eu/index.shtml#sponsors
Invest in ME Research is a founder member of the European ME Alliance of 15 like-minded patient organisations, member of the European Federation of Neurological Associations and formed the European ME Research Group.
Invest in ME Research is run entirely by volunteers who either have ME or are parents and carers of ME patients. They are driving the agenda of scientific research into diagnostic tests and treatments for myalgic encephalomyelitis in UK in collaboration with international researchers of world renown.
Please join us in helping them to do all of this for ME.
Thank you for your support!
