A professionally produced copy (pdf) of report of the NIH’s “State of the Knowledge Workshop on ME/CFS Research” is now available . This meeting was convened in April 2011, and was attended by 32 investigators from numerous scientific disciplines and a range of other interested parties. In fact, a good overview of some of the presentations, written shortly after the event, can still be viewed.

While the report itself does not add a great deal to what we already know, it does summarize usefully, in 15 pages, some of the existing knowledge about ME/CFS, including the problems and challenges in the field – and crucially it does this from a biomedical perspective.
