Invest in ME Research

Patient Leader

Invest in ME Research is an independent UK charity finding, funding and facilitating a strategy of biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME or ME/CFS), as defined by WHO-ICD-10-G93.3. and promoting better education about ME. The charity is run by volunteers - patients or parents of children with ME - with no paid staff. Overheads are kept to a minimum to enable all funds raised to go to promoting education of, and funding for biomedical research into, ME. We are a founder member and current chair of the European ME Alliance (EMEA), a collaboration of European national charities and organisations. The charity organises an annual research Colloquium and conference in London.

Richard, Pia, Kathleen & an ever-increasing volunteer team have brought great energy, for want of a better word, to the M.E. cause. Their most recent success was the great achievement of raising the initial target for a Rituximab trial in the UK. They help give hope to many affected by M.E. and their loved ones in the UK and around the world.
