IiME International ME/CFS Conference

Tuesday 28 April 2009

IiME Conference Invest in ME will be hosting the 4th International ME/CFS Conference on 29 May 2009 in London.

The Conference “builds on the successful biomedical research conferences organised by Invest in ME in previous years.”

Invest in ME says:

“As in previous years Invest in ME aim to raise awareness of the neurological illness myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) and we shall be focusing on severely and moderately affected patients with ME as part of our campaign for a national strategy for biomedical research into ME which will lead to treatment and a cure for this devastating illness - an illness which is about 5 times more common in the UK than HIV/AIDS - yet which has had little funding spent on biomedical research.

At the 2009 conference we will raise more awareness of severe ME - a group of patients who are not represented in research trials and misunderstood by healthcare services. Many believe that studying severe ME will yield treatments and cures for this illness and have repercussions for other services including management of ME.”

Here is the Conference's agenda:
