More about Christopher W. Armstrong, PhD:

Chris Armstrong, PhD, is a Visiting Scholar at Stanford and 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 Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (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.
