Ron Davis Talks On ME/CFS………And Texas Listens

Ron Davis was invited to the University of Texas to talk to the biological and bioengineering departments over two days. His long talk was putatively on developing affordable technologies that can be used by doctors, but it ended up being more than that. On the technology side, though, Davis has always been focused on making a difference.​

His Stanford Genome Technology Center’s main focus is to develop new and affordable technologies that can make a difference in the doctor’s office. That’s what the nano-needle – a potentially very cheap diagnostic device – is all about. From SGTC’s web page

The Biotechnology (err ME/CFS) Talk

Davis, of course, has done innumerable talks but probably none more important to him than the ones he’s doing now on ME/CFS. Because several of Davis’s biotechnologies (nanoneedle, magnetic levitation device, HLA analytics) are being used in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), Davis used the opportunity to spread the word on ME/CFS. He then went into the biological and bioengineering departments over two days doing the same thing.

Janet Dafoe reported that Ron came back from his two-day visit surprised and gratified at the response.

Talks at Universities usually end with a couple of people milling around for 5 or 10 minutes afterwards but Janet reported that hundreds of people remained for up to an hour after Ron’s talk. They were interested in ME/CFS and shocked they’d never heard of a disease that was a) so prevalent and b) could be so disabling.
