From Solve M.E.
Since 2017, unleashing the potential research funds from the Department of Defense (DOD) for ME/CFS has been one of our highest priorities. After more than three years of hard work, the first ME/CFS awards *ever* funded by Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP) have been announced! This has been a really hard year for all of us, which is what makes this historic victory extra special.
Thanks to your advocacy, two research awards have been announced totaling $547,000 for the next two years. Congratulations to the winning research teams! These two initiatives are led by:
- Rosa Maria Pari Ñaña, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Brigham & Women’s Hospital
- Dan Wilkinson, Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham
We succeeded because of you! You sent 12,579 messages to Congress on this issue through the Solve M.E. advocacy action center in addition to hundreds of phone calls and meetings. You demanded the reinstatement of ME/CFS as an eligible topic area for the PRMRP in 2020.
