Meet the Scientists: Prof Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik

‘Meet the Scientists’ is a series of interviews with researchers working on ME and chronic fatigue syndrome. We hear about current research directly from scientists and meet the people doing such important work to improve our health. The series will introduce early career researchers through to interviewing scientists and clinicians who have been working on the problems for decades.

Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik is the co-director of the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) at Australia’s Griffith University, along with Prof Don Staines, and they have been working in the field of chronic fatigue syndrome and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for nine years. She is an author of the Canadian and the International Consensus Criteria for ME.

NCNED last month hosted the ‘CFS/ME International Conference’ at Griffith University and announced they have been awarded $2.2 million in fellowships from the Stafford Fox Foundation which will help researchers discover the pathology, develop a diagnostic test for GPs and treatment. This is in addition to $6.1 million NCNED received from the Foundation in the past five years at NCNED.

Prof Marshall-Gradisnik is on the Australian government’s National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC’s) advisory committee on ME and CFS. The committee’s draft report to government will soon be open for public consultation.
