Cheney was a founding Director of the American Association of CFS, now the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.[2] He was a provider of Ampligen for a clinical trial while in North Carolina.

In 2010 at the Invest in ME Conference, regarding Graded exercise therapy, Dr Paul Cheney said "The whole idea that you can take a disease like this and exercise your way to health is foolishness. It is insane".[3]

In 2016, the Open Medicine Foundation announced that Dr. Cheney would participate in the ME/CFS Metabolomics study with Dr. Robert Naviaux, Dr. Ronald Davis, and Dr. Eric Gordon.
