OMF Scientist Receives Grant Funding For ME/CFS Study



From The Open Medicine Foundation.


Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) is thrilled to share that our staff science liaison, Christopher W. Armstrong, PhD, has been awarded a grant to further his research into the relationship between the altered metabolism of nitrogen and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). The research will be completed at the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University, under the direction of Dr. Ron Davis, Director of OMF’s Scientific Advisory Board.

Dr. Armstrong first noted increased usage of amino acids, which contains nitrogen, in the metabolism of people with ME/CFS while working at the University of Melbourne. He was the first to apply metabolomics to the field of ME/CFS, publishing his results in 2015. Metabolomics is the study of small molecules (metabolites) using common standards of detection that enable different studies to be comparative and additive.
