OMF Scientific Advisory Board Director Ronald W. Davis, PhD: An Update on ME / CFS Research

We are pleased to share a research update by Open Medicine Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board director, Ronald W. Davis, PhD, produced by Ashley (Davis) Haugen at the Stanford Genome Technology Center (SGTC).

The Center has made significant breakthroughs towards understanding the molecular mechanisms of the disease and is now in a position to test chemical compounds for treatment.

Link to the written transcript of this update.

OMF is helping fund the work of Dr. Davis’ CFS Research Center team at the SGTC. So far, their breakthroughs have been achieved by doing one experiment at a time, week-by-week. At this point, the team is ready to ramp up the project in order to carry out multiple parallel investigations to get answers as fast as possible. However, substantially more funding is needed for this to happen, and your donations help to accelerate our pace.

Please donate today and invite your family and friends to join you.
