RME Sweden Donation to Support Research in Sweden
Thank you to our friends at RME Sweden (Riksförbundet för ME-patienter) for your latest donation to support research at Uppsala University. Since joining forces, RME Sweden has donated over $140,000 USD (1,326,444 SEK) to OMF. An ardent supporter of OMF, RME Sweden shared that all restricted for research donations that they receive are donated to OMF “to secure scientific quality and to guarantee the independence of the researchers.”
Kerstin Heiling, RME Sweden Chair and International Coordinator said, “We are very grateful to OMF, not only for helping us with scientific supervision, but also for support far beyond the contributions that we can make.” Thank you to our partners in Sweden for your continuing support to advance this urgent research.
