New $1 Million Donation For ME/CFS Research
Friday 25 May 2018
New $1 million donation for ME/CFS research!
We're pleased to announce that OMF received a $1 million anonymous pledge to escalate Dr. Ron Davis’s systems biology approach with Robert Phair, PhD, at the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University. This will expand the search for and testing of their “metabolic trap” hypothesis, and will enable Dr. Davis to hire an additional scientist with experience in complex metabolic analysis to accelerate this research. We are extremely grateful to the generous donor who is making this possible.
Stay tuned for research updates about progress on this exciting project by liking our Facebook page and signing up for email updates at www.omf.ngo/ newsletter-sign-up/.

BIG NEWS on this #OMFScienceWednesday: OMF creates new Harvard ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center and expands Stanford Data Center
We are proud to announce that OMF has funded $1.8 million for the establishment of a new ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at the Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals!
The new Harvard Center will be led by OMF Scientific Advisory Board members Ronald G. Tompkins, MD, ScD, and Wenzhong Xiao, PhD, of Harvard University and will work synergistically with the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford led by Ronald W. Davis, PhD, of Stanford University, also funded by OMF.
OMF is also funding the expansion of the Stanford Data Center for the Severely Ill Patients (SIPS) Study to encompass all the data from the Stanford and Harvard ME/CFS Collaborative Research Centers, as well as data from any other research we are funding.
"These are exciting and important steps forward in our work to end ME/CFS, which we were able to take thanks to the dedication and donations of our many supporters. Thank you all for helping to make this possible and for being our partners in the urgent effort to put an end to this devastating disease." - Linda Tannenbaum, CEO/President
