Dr. Derek F. H. Pheby, BSc, MB, BS, LLM, MPhil, FFPH, is a Visiting Professor of Epidemiology, Buckinghamshire New University, Wycombe, England, United Kingdom. He served as the Project Coordinator of the National ME Observatory, a collaborative project involving three universities, aiming to fill gaps in research knowledge.[1] He was a former member of the Chief Medical Officer’s Working Group on CFS/ME and former trustee of Action for ME.[2]

Pheby initiated the establishment of the ME/CFS Disease Register in the UK by using a READ-code based algorithm on Electronic Medical Records which conformed to certain case definitions for ME/CFS. The ME/CFS Disease Register is used to recruit participants with ME/CFS in an unbiased way from a large population base.[3] Likewise, he is establishing a post-mortem brain and tissue bank for the study of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome.[4]

EUROMENE[edit | edit source]

In 2001, Dr. Pheby was responsible for the establishment of the European ME/CFS research network (EUROMENE), a European Union COST Action CA15111 not-for-profit research organization committed to tackling the cause and treatment for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome[5] He now leads the EUROMENE Socio-economics working group, whose objective is to estimate the burden of ME/CFS to society and provide long-term trend estimates for societal impact.[6]
