Funding

 

By Deborah Marshall in Griffith News.

The National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) has been awarded $1.46 million in National Health and Medical Research Council funding for research into myalgic encephalomyelitis /chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).

Part of Griffith University’s Menzies Health Institute Queensland , the centre’s researchers will investigate potential diagnostic tests as well as suitable pharmaco-therapeutic interventions.

NCNED Co-Director Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik said the project will, for the first time, address NHMRC priorities to discover the pathophysiology of the disabling illness.

“It will pave the way for diagnostic tests and treatments using highly innovative research techniques known as patch-clamp electrophysiology,’’ she said.
