Basant K. Puri, Professor, is a member of the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Medicine, MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College School of Medicine, UK.[1] He is, also, a part-time consultant and medical researcher at Breakspear Medical, Hertfordshire, UK.[2]

Puri heads the Lipid Neuroscience Group at Imperial College, London, and authored of over 130 peer-reviewed medical and scientific papers and over 30 books.[3]

He used proton neurospectroscopy to identify a differential variation in choline levels in the brains of ME patients, suggesting that there are insufficient levels of fatty acids chains in the brains of ME patients.[4]
