ME/CFS Research Community Surprises: Submits Ten Research Center Applications to NIH

The NIH Research Center applications are in. The NIH is surely looking closely at how the chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) research community responds. After all, they haven’t responded very well over time. A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request indicated that the NIH receives few – really incredibly few – applications from ME/CFS researchers every year. (A blog on this is coming up). That surely didn’t inspire the uber competitive NIH to lay out a lot of money for research centers.

In fact, the NIH is probably asking itself whether the ME/CFS field is ready to produce effective research centers, and the funding probably reflects that concern. These are small Centers and there are not many of them in a field with so many needs. The research centers are a big opportunity and a big test for the ME/CFS research community. Is it up to the task?
