ME Research UK

ME Research UK is a charity with the principal aim of commissioning and funding scientific (biomedical) investigation into the causes, consequences and treatment of ME/CFS.

In fourteen years ME Research UK has invested more than £1 million funding 37 specific research projects in the UK and overseas — more than any other single organisation in the world outside North America. The results of these have been published as 59 research papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

ME Research UK has a mission to energise ME research, which involves:

  • Raising awareness of the need for biomedical research into ME/CFS globally
  • Providing high quality information on all aspects of the illness for a wide range of audiences from summarising and appraising scientific literature on ME/CFS to informing the policy agenda
  • Facilitating or hosting meetings on ME/CFS biomedical research — such as its “New Horizons” conferences in Edinburgh and Cambridge, and its Colloquia in Glasgow and Dundee.
