From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

The Jackson Laboratory ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center was created in 2017 when the Jackson Lab (JAX) led by Derya Unutmaz was awarded a five-year grant totaling $10,553,732[1] from the National Institutes of Health for one of the country's first Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Collaborative Research Centers (CRC). This CRC will work in conjunction with Drs. Lucinda Bateman and Suzanne Vernon at the Bateman Horne Center of Salt Lake City, Utah; Dr. Xudong Yao at the University of Connecticut; Dr. Alison Motsinger-Reif at North Carolina State University and Precise.ly, a San Francisco-based company.[2] The CRC's focus will be on the topological mapping of immune, microbiota, metabolomic and clinical phenotypes in ME/CFS.[3]
