If we ask Nature a question and ask it well, Nature answers. Most of the time the answer refutes our hypothesis. This time, Nature didn’t refute the hypothesis. Robert Phair
Ron Davis mentioned one of chronic fatigue syndrome’s aces in the hole several times – the chance to make a huge difference in a major disease. You could work for decades on cancer and make a difference there – an important difference but probably a small one, or you can take on something like ME/CFS and potentially make a huge difference. One of the reasons we have so many creative researchers in this small field may be because the ME/CFS challenge draws inquisitive minds.
Phair certainly has a inquisitive mind. He was one of the most active participants in the three-day Working Group session put together by Ron Davis and the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research Center at Stanford University. On the fourth day, the Working Group was featured in the Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS at Stanford University. Both were sponsored by the Open Medicine Foundation with a special thank you to OMF Board Member Dr. Deborah Rose.
