ME / CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford Research Update with Dr. Ron Davis

On this #OMFScienceWednesday, we are happy to share a video research update from Dr. Ron Davis about the ME / CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford funded by OMF! This is the first of a 3-part series; the next two will feature Drs. Mike Snyder and Mark Davis of Stanford University. They talk about the latest and most promising results from their teams, why they are excited to be in the field, what they will do in the new year with the funding OMF has provided, and how all of this research could lead to new treatments for ME / CFS!

In this video, Ron Davis discusses the latest results in developing new diagnostic technology for ME / CFS with the nanoneedle biosensor invented at the Stanford Genome Technology Center. He also talks about new findings from the Severely Ill Patients Big Data study. For more details, watch the video on our website. /ron-davis-research-update-video/
