Chris Armstrong, PhD, is most well known for his research using metabolomics to observe biochemical alterations in ME/CFS patients. He began his work in this field at the University of Melbourne, beginning a PhD project to apply metabolomics to study ME/CFS and published his first ME/CFS metabolomics study on blood and urine in 2015.
Since then Chris has set up collaborative efforts to apply metabolomics to immunological experiments on ME/CFS, observing how metabolism may relate to immune cell function. He has also focused on longitudinal research in ME/CFS while looking to extend metabolic capabilities across the field of ME/CFS to help collate different patient groups.
Chris is working with OMF’s communications to translate science for the public while continuing his research as a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University. Chris and his wife have one dog.
