Prof. dr. F.C. (Frans) Visser is a Dutch cardiologist and researcher.[1] He studied Medicine at the Leiden University and graduated in 1977. His cardiology training was in VU Medical Center (VUMC) Amsterdam, Netherlands, and registered as a cardiologist in July 1982. Cardiologist and Professor by special appointment at VUMC in Amsterdam, and acting tutor at the cardiology A study at VUMC. An university lecturer Chair regarding myocardial metabolism in cardiac failure. Since 2008 working in the independent treatment center Cardiozorg, Hoofddorp. Initially cooperating with the CFS/ME Medical Center in Amsterdam, an area of interest arose alongside cardiology in chronic fatigue syndrome.

His research interests include exercise limitation, orthostatic intolerance, and dysautonomyia.[1]

Myalgic encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome, often used when both illnesses are considered the same.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis or M.E. has different diagnostic criteria to chronic fatigue syndrome; neurological symptoms are required but fatigue is an optional symptom.<ref name="ICP2011primer">{{Citation
