OMF ACCELERATES RESEARCH ACROSS THE GLOBE

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS) affects over 20 million people.

Established in 2012, Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) leads the largest, concerted worldwide nonprofit effort to diagnose, treat, and  prevent ME / CFS and related chronic, complex diseases such as Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Post COVID.

OMF adds urgency to the search for answers by driving transformational philanthropy and investments into global research. We have raised over $28 Million from private donors, and facilitated and funded the establishment of four prestigious ME / CFS Collaborative Research Centers.

ME / CFS and
Post COVID Research Study

The four, OMF-established, ME / CFS Collaborative Research Centers have launched an international study of the possible conversion of COVID-19 patients to ME / CFS.

This study, which seeks to learn about the pathways involved in the development of ME / CFS, can lead to biomarkers, new treatments, and prevention strategies.
