Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD, is the Research Liaison at Bateman Horne Center of Excellence which specializes in treatment and research for ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia[1] and the Chief Scientific Revolutionary of The BioCollective, a collaborative that provides storage and sales of microbiome samples for research and development.[2]

From November 2007 – May 2015, Dr. Vernon was the Scientific Director of Solve ME/CFS Initiative, formerly known as CFIDS Association of America.[3] While there she recognized that access to well-characterized clinical populations was a barrier to engaging more scientists in ME/CFS research. Thus, she started the Research Institute Without Walls (RIWW), "the first nonprofit patient-centered research initiative focused on identifying diagnostic biomarkers and disease-modifying treatment for ME/CFS.[1] The core of RIWW is the SolveCFS BioBank & Patient Registry.[4]

From May 1990 – October 2007, Dr. Vernon worked for the US Centers for Disease Control, first on the team investigating the human papillomavirus as an opportunistic infection in HIV-infected woman, and then in 1997, she became the CFS research group team leader, under William Reeves, MD, the Director of the CDC Chronic Fatigue Research Program.[5][6]

In 2005, Dr Vernon was one of the authors of the CDC case definition of CFS, commonly called the Reeves criteria.[7]
