The Autumn 2022 issue of Breakthrough magazine is now available online. This issue includes articles on a study looking for EBV biomarkers, a new PhD project investigating the genetics of ME/CFS, an article on roads not taken in ME/CFS research, research bites, and much more.
Our Science and Research Lead, Dr Keith Geraghty, has been writing a string of informative articles over the last few months. The most recent of these cover sleep and pain problems, the potential link between Lyme disease and ME/CFS, and the impact of long COVID on interest in other post-infection syndromes.
What are we funding?
For a handy illustration of all the research projects we are currently funding, including where they are based and what scientific areas they are investigating, this infographic summarises them all.
Big Give Christmas Challenge
There is less than a fortnight to go before the launch of the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022. This fundraising event runs from midday Tuesday 29th November to midday Tuesday 6th December, during which the first £7,000 donated to ME Research UK will be DOUBLED by our wonderful Pledgers. All the money raised will be invested in ME research. We will be in touch again when the challenge launches.
There are still seven designs left in our Christmas card collection this year. You can order your cards online, by post or via telephone, and all profits go to support our work.
