OVER $18 MILLION RAISED FOR RESEARCH SINCE 2012

Open Medicine Foundation | Home

Our goal at Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) is to fundraise and facilitate open collaborative and groundbreaking research into chronic complex diseases to find a simple way to diagnose these diseases, identify effective treatments, and ultimately, find a cure for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and diseases with overlapping symptoms, such as chronic Lyme and Fibromyalgia.

Our Scientific Advisory Board is highly credentialed, world-renowned, and includes two Nobel laureates. We currently fund three ME/CFS Collaborative Research Centers housed at Harvard, Stanford and Uppsala University in Sweden. In addition, we fund an annual international gathering of top researchers who actively collaborate to accelerate research to help over 20 million affected by ME/CFS around the world.

We’re leading the End ME/CFS Project. These findings should also provide insights into related diseases, such as Fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme disease. Learn about our current projects.

ME/CFS is a global crisis and our message of hope is universal. 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.
