Marcie L. Zinn, Ph.D., is an experimental / clinical / rehabilitation psychologist conducting myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) research with her husband, Mark Zinn, and Dr. Leonard Jason at the DePaul Center for Community Research. Marcie's research interests include the study of brain dysfunction in chronic disease, such as myalgic encephalomyelitis. Marcie and her husband, Mark founded Performing Arts Neuroscience and Psychology. Her early research and career interests were in Performance Neuroscience and Psychology, but after being diagnosed in 2009 with viral encephalitis which developed into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, her interest turned toward using her extensive qEEG and neuroscience skills for research in ME. Under the leadership of Dr. Jose Montoya, she conducted a pilot study to look at cognitive dysfunction using qEEG methods. While continuing to collaborate with Jose Montoya at Stanford, she and her husband Mark moved to Chicago to work with Dr. Leonard Jason and have published research using brain network modeling in the study of ME brain dysfunction.

ME/CFS Common Data Element (CDE) Project[edit | edit source]

Member of the Pain Working Group and the Neurologic/Cognitive/CNS Imaging Working Group of the Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Common Data Element (CDE) Project sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[1]

Open Letter to The Lancet[edit | edit source]

Two open letters to the editor of The Lancet urged the editor to commission a fully independent review of the PACE trial, which the journal had published in 2011. In 2016, Dr. Zinn, along with 41 colleagues in the ME/CFS field, signed the second letter.
