ME Research UK has taken the decision to withdraw its membership from the UK CFS/ME Research Collaborative with immediate effect.
ME Research UK exists to fund biomedical research into ME/CFS, to find its cause, to develop effective treatments and ultimately to discover a cure. In 17 years, it has funded 45 specific research projects in the UK and overseas, more than any other single organisation in the world outside the American continent. The decision to resign from the Collaborative was not taken lightly but reflects the Trustees’ wish to focus on the charity’s key aims. ME Research UK remains committed to drive increased interest and investment into biomedical ME/CFS research and looks forward to continuing to work constructively with organisations, charities, researchers and funders in the future.
