Call for grant applications

ME Research UK is pleased to an announce an open call for applications from researchers wishing to investigate the causes, consequences and treatment of ME/CFS.

Funding is available to support scientifically robust biomedical studies at appropriate host institutions worldwide.

Please note that we also welcome applications for PhD-level research funding at this time – there will not be a separate call for applications for PhD-level research this year.

The deadline for outline proposals is Friday 23 August 2024, by 5 p.m. BST.

It is essential that applicants demonstrate clear translational potential for their proposed research, and how it will benefit patients in the short-to-medium term.

We are happy to consider projects in all areas related to the biology or treatment of ME/CFS, but we are especially keen to receive applications in the following areas:

  • Muscle fatigue – underlying mechanisms and potential therapies
  • Brain and nervous system – structural and functional changes
  • Immune system – autoimmunity and the role of specific antibodies
  • Metabolomics and the search for diagnostic biomarkers
  • The symptomatic impact of ME/CFS on other organ systems
