End ME/CFS Project
The End ME/CFS Project is a project of the Open Medicine Foundation and is led by Ronald Davis. The project is modelled on two former success stories: The Human Genome Project (in which Ronald Davis' work was instrumental), and The Consortium on Inflammation and Host Response to Injury in Humans.
The project’s first study is the ME/CFS Severely Ill, Big Data Study that is designed to find a clinically useful diagnostic biomarker.
The project has a notable scientific advisory board, including three Nobel laureates.
ME/CFS Research[edit | edit source]
In March 2016, it was announced that the ME/CFS Severely Ill, Big Data Study had a significant result in the area of mitochondria. This resulted in the addition of Robert Naviaux (a mitochondrial expert) to the research team.
