Maureen R. Hanson, PhD., is the Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology & Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA. In addition to her research on genome-containing organelles of plants, chloroplasts and mitochondria, she is exploring the pathophysiology of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Research goals include examining the gut and blood microbiome in healthy vs. ill subjects and identifying differences in gene expression before and after exercise in subjects diagnosed with CFS/ME compared to healthy subjects.[1]

Dr. Hanson, together with a team of researchers and clinicians at Ithaca College collaborated to create a new ME/CFS research center called the Center for Enervating NeuroImmune Disease (CENID).[2] She, also, is a member of the Working Group which offers their expertise and resources to the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University.[3]

Dr. Hanson's strong desire to research and advocate for ME/CFS is motivated by her having a family member with chronic fatigue syndrome.[4]
