About the Speakers:

Dr Abhijit ChaudhuriDr Abhijit Chaudhuri (UK), Consultant Neurologist at the Essex Centre of Neurological Sciences. Dr Chaudhuri was appointed as a Senior Lecturer and Consultant Neurologist in July 2000. Research on fatigue in common neurological disorders is the main theme of Dr Chaudhuri’s work. He takes special interest in myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). His other areas of interest include multiple sclerosis, neurological infections and adult neurometabolic diseases. He has been widely published on a number of medical diseases and conditions. He has recently collaborated with Dr John Gow on the genetic biomarkers for CFS – what they have termed “the gene signature” for ME/CFS.

 

Prof Kenny De MeirleirProf Kenny De Meirleir (Belgium), MD, PhD. His vast experience includes roles as Professor of Physiology, Pathophysiology and Medicine, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium; Professor of Physiology and exercise physiology and Professor of Medicine at the University of Brussels. His research activities in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome date back to 1990. Winner of the Solvay Prize and the NATO research award. He has been director of one of the world’s largest CFS clinics for almost two decades. This is Prof De Meirleir’s second vist to Adelaide: he was also here in 2005.

 

Prof Malcolm HooperProf Malcolm Hooper (UK). Malcolm Hooper is a British biochemist and Emeritus Professor of Medicinal Chemistry, University of Sunderland, UK, Malcolm Hooper has been one of the most outspoken advocates for ME/CFS patients and those who research the physiological foundations and progression of this disease. His studies of the similarities (and differences) between the disabling illnesses of Gulf War Syndrome (GWS), Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) and ME/CFS, and his perseverance in advocating for the physiological basis of these illnesses, have allotted him a place of honor within the ME/CFS international community.
