Microbe Discovery Project merges with CII Center for Solutions

The Microbe Discovery Project (MDP) is moving forward as part of Columbia University Center for Infection and Immunity (CII) Center for Solutions for ME/CFS.

Our small MDP team started this project more than a few years ago to increase funding and visibility as well as to advocate for more support for desperately needed excellent quality research into ME/CFS. The MDP team and our collective community raised money directly by crowdfunding to help the Columbia University CII world class research team with their projects into this disease and help raise more awareness of the desperate need for funding. These projects are going strong and we’re looking forward to the possible breakthroughs in ME/CFS diagnosis and treatment that can come from them.

It is a certainty that the MDP initiative and the global community driven efforts in support of it has been crucial to the CII’s success in forming the Center for Solutions for ME/CFS. The funds and visible support accumulated helped to springboard their work and provided more of a foundation to their research - so that they were ultimately able to be competitive and successful in obtaining federal funding.

Thanks to the National Institutes of Health funding that the CII has now received, they were able to finally launch their ambitious Center for Solutions for ME/CFS and will be able to sink their teeth into more work. Our community succeeded! Now it’s time for our MDP team of patient volunteers to pass the metaphorical torch over to CII.
