Walter Ian Lipkin, or W. Ian Lipkin, MD, is the John Snow Professor of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and Professor of Neurology and Pathology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University. Lipkin is also Director of the Center for Infection and Immunity, an academic laboratory for microbe hunting in acute and chronic diseases.[1]

Talk and interviews[edit | edit source]

  • Discover Interview: The World's Most Celebrated Virus Hunter, Ian Lipkin
Discover - Health & Medicine By Grant Delin
"When Ian Lipkin chose a career in infectious diseases, he envisioned hunting for pathogens in daring treks around the world. Though disappointed to learn that modern-day virus hunters work largely from the lab, he still wound up a pioneer."[2]

Notable studies[edit | edit source]

XMRV[edit | edit source]

The scientist who put the nail in XMRV's coffin

Nature By Ewen Callaway

"A study published today has found no evidence to support research linking the retroviruses XMRV2 and pMLV3 to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). The US$2.3-million study, funded by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), comes three years after a link between XMRV and CFS was first reported in Science."[4][11]

  • Ian Lipkin: Three to Five Years* to Solve Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)
Simmaron Research By Cort Johnson
"Ian Lipkin flew to Lake Tahoe this December to fund raise for work he’s doing with the Simmaron Research Foundation. In a talk covering his virus hunting career, the threat of pathogens to humanity, and his work with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), he dropped a bombshell: he stated that he believes it’s possible to solve ME/CFS in three to five years."[13]
  • Ian Lipkin Gets ME/CFS Grant – and So Do Others: the NIH Grants of 2015
Pro-Health By Cort Johnson
"Ian Lipkin gets a big grant and so did some others. (Could the IOM and P2P reports have prompted this little flurry of interest?)"[14]
  • Drs Lipkin, Mady Hornig and colleagues discover robust evidence that chronic fatigue syndrome is a biological illness
The Microbe Discovery Project
"Researchers at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health identified distinct immune changes in patients diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, known medically as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) or Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease."[15]

Our studies of blood, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva and feces, using state-of-the-art methods that include microbial gene sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics, and immunological profiling, confirm that patients with ME/CFS have biological abnormalities that cannot be characterized as psychosomatic.

    Committees convened by the National Academies of Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have also concluded that ME/CFS is not a psychosomatic disorder.

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
