Meet The Researchers – Michael Van Elzakker (PhD) and Kenneth Kwong (PhD)

Research

From Solve ME/CFS Initiative.

 

Michael (Mike) Van Elzakker, PhD, a researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, has been an influential thought leader in how the field might leverage imaging techniques to assess neurological features of ME/CFS. Kenneth (Ken) Kwong, PhD and Suk-tak (Phoebe) Chan, PhD, experts in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), will co-lead the study. The research team will use fMRI to assess blood flow in the brains of participants at baseline and during PEM provoked by an exercise challenge. They aim to identify brain regions that are related to ME/CFS by correlating the fMRI measures with patient-reported fatigue levels.
