Malcolm Hooper is Professor Emeritus of Medicine Chemistry at the University of Sunderland in the UK and an advocate for people living with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). He chaired the Invest in ME International Conference in London in 2008, 2010 and 2011.[1]

His numerous articles on ME, many of which were in collaboration with Margaret Williams, were mostly published on MEActionUK but can now be found here. A passionate critic of psychological theories and treatments for ME, his articles illustrate how the "Wessely School" have ignored the biomedical science on ME/CFS for almost 30 years.

Professor Hooper is also the President and Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK National Gulf Veterans and Families Association.

PACE trial Criticism[edit]

Professor Hooper was the principal author of the 442 page report: Magical Medicine: How to Make a Disease Disappear, a scathing criticism of the PACE trial released a year before the first results of the trial were published in the Lancet in 2011. This was followed up by numerous other articles listed below, including a formal Complaint to The Lancet, letters to the Medical Research Council, politicians, etc.
