Driving research of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS),
Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Long Covid

Who is doing the day to day research?

Under the coordination of Ronald W. Davis, PhD, our ME / CFS Scientific Advisory Board director, we have an actively growing group of scientists, clinicians, and lab technicians working very hard on this disease and meeting once a week to share results and plan the next steps. They are screening patients, doing the tests, and analyzing the results. Some are with Dr. Davis at the CFS Stanford Research Center at Stanford University, which is part of the Stanford Genome Technology Center. And some are from other institutions and companies; we choose scientists who are already experienced in their area of biology research to do the tests because they are the experts. See the list here.
