Tickets are now available for the UK CFS/ME Research Collaborative (CMRC) conference  at Wills Hall, University of Bristol on Monday 1 and Tuesday 2 September 2014. Keynote speakers will include Prof Robert Dantzer, MD of the Anderson Cancer Centre; Prof Andrew Lloyd of UNSW Sydney; and Prof Ian Lipkin of Columbia University, New York.

The event is primarily for researchers – see cmrc-researchers-flyer – and early bird and member discounts are available, so booking early is advisable. There is currently a call for abstracts, and the closing date for these is Friday 4 July 2014.

People with ME are also welcome to attend a joint session on the afternoon of Monday 1 September – see CMRC patients Flyer. The aim of this session is to enhance engagement between researchers and patients, and it will include a question and answer session with panellists Professors Dantzer, Lloyd and Lipkin, who will be joined by Professor Maria Fitzgerald of UCL.

If you wish to come along, further details including information on how to booking can be found at the booking page. It’s only £20 for people with ME to attend the patient/researcher session, and ME Research UK will be there (along with some of the researchers we have funded over the years) – so we hope to see you there!
