MONTREAL April 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - International experts will participate in the first-ever Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Canadian Collaborative Team Conference on May 3–5, 2018 at CHU Sainte-Justine. The conference will bring together 250 researchers and healthcare professionals from various disciplines to develop an international research agenda for this debilitating disease, for which there is no known cause or effective treatment.

"I am extremely encouraged by the interest shown by leading researchers and clinicians, who recognize the importance of establishing research priorities that will advance our understanding of ME/CFS and identify new strategies for treating patients," says Dr. Alain Moreau, Head, Viscogliosi Laboratory in Molecular Genetics of Musculoskeletal Diseases, CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center and Scientific Chair of the Conference.

The conference will focus on:

  • Methods to properly diagnose patients with ME/CFS;
  • The role of biomarkers in diagnosing ME/CFS;
  • Benefits of establishing a biobank to advance research;
  • Ways to improve clinical care for ME/CFS patients; and
  • How to initiate, support, sustain and advance research on ME/CFS.
