Sonya M. Marshall-Gradisnik, BSc (Hons), PhD, is co-director (alongside Professor Donald Staines) of the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) at Griffith University in Australia. Her expertise is in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis with particular focus on Natural Killer Cell function and signalling pathways, T regulatory and B cell phenotypes and cytokine production, and transcriptional profiling and gene expression. [1] In her studies, she compares the changes of the different cells of the immune system in relation to the severity of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

International Consensus Criteria[edit | edit source]

She is one of the authors of the 2011 case definition, International Consensus Criteria.[2]

International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis[edit | edit source]

Marshall-Gradisnik is on the Board of Directors of the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME).

Biomarker Patent[edit | edit source]

In 2016, Griffith University filed for a patent for a biological marker (Patent Publication number WO2016023077 A1)[3] for the diagnosis and management of ME and CFS. Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik and Ekua Brenu are listed as the inventors. The application states: "The present invention resides broadly in the use of at least one miRNA as a biological marker for identifying or diagnosing a subject having CFS and/or ME."[4]

Notable studies[edit | edit source]

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. Marshall-Gradisnik, along with 41 colleagues in the ME/CFS field, signed the second letter.

Clinic location[edit | edit source]

National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) is located at Griffith University on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
