The Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) is an American non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2012. It funds and initiates groundbreaking research into complex chronic illnesses. It supports neuro-immune disease research with a focus on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Fibromyalgia (FMS), and Chronic Lyme Disease.

The OMF's current project is the End ME/CFS Project.

Many of those involved in OMF, including Executive Director Linda Tannenbaum, either have a neuro-immune disease or have a family member who has a neuro-immune disease.

OMF's strategy is to include highly recognized and accomplished scientists with expertise in body systems linked to neuro-immune diseases. The organization also has an extensive patient network as developed through email newsletter subscriptions.
