From Invest in ME Research.
Invest in ME Research is already approaching the issues around ME with an international context.
We have already engaged with researchers and clinicians in other countries. So in this discussion we can also use the knowledge and collaborative activities from discussions the charity has had with all of our international contacts.
Along with our colleagues in the European ME Alliance (EMEA) we are looking at ME in Europe and EMEA has been working very hard within the European Federation of Neurological Alliances (EFNA) to look at ways to raise the profile of ME. We will have news of developments here very soon.
We are also in continuing discussions with NIH on ways to improve diagnosis, research and treatments for ME.
Regarding the CMO meeting – this is a UK problem -and therefore requires a UK strategy.
Invest in ME Research has therefore invited the CMOs of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to this meeting.
Accompanying us to the visit to the CMO will be Countess Mar, Dr Ian Gibson, Professor Jonathan Edwards and Dr Nigel Speight.
