OVER $15 MILLION RAISED FOR RESEARCH SINCE 2012
Our mission at Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) is to fund and initiate collaborative and groundbreaking research into chronic complex diseases so that patients will be able to live life more fully.
Led by our esteemed ME/CFS Scientific Advisory Board, we’re now focused on the End ME/CFS Project, designed to find biomarkers and effective treatments for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). These findings should also provide insights into related diseases, such as fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme disease. Learn about our current study.
ME/CFS is a global crisis. We communicate with patients in over 100 countries. We proudly share translations of our news and newsletters to inform our global OMF family and share our message of hope internationally.
