The Quadram Institute on the Norwich Research Park is holding a public meeting to talk about their ongoing research into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME or ME/CFS).
The event will also be a chance to give your opinions about the planned future clinical trial into a new form of treatment that targets gut microbes for ME.
The charity Invest in ME Research has pledged over £500,000 to fund a clinical trial for testing the use of Faecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) to treat ME, and the research team want to gather your opinions to inform the design of the trial and interest in participating.
There are around 250,000 people in the UK with ME. It causes widespread pain, extreme fatigue, an inability to concentrate and for a large proportion of people, gut disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
