Daniel L. Peterson, MD, is a physician in Incline Village, Nevada specializing in myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). He was at the epicenter of the 1984 Incline Village chronic fatigue syndrome outbreak[1] and continues to be a leader in treatment and research about ME/CFS, serving on Simmaron Research’s Scientific Advisory Board and the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia.[2]

He helped establish the Whittemore Peterson Institute (WPI) which was renamed in 2016 to the Nevada Center for Biomedical Research. He left in 2010 to return to private practice at Sierra Internal Medicine, Incline Village, Nevada.[3]

Dr. Peterson was the first physician to use Ampligen, an immunomodulator made by Hemispherx Biopharma, in the treatment for ME/CFS, using it on Nancy Kaiser, a very severe patient.[4] He has participated in every Ampligen trial since, up to the AMP-511, open label, cost-recovery trial available today.[5]

Several documentaries about myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) have featured Dr. Peterson, including, I Remember Me and Forgotten Plague, and the news feature, Sick and Tired.
