    Derek Enlander The Mount Sinai ME/CFS Research and Treatment Center will immediately initiate its first research cohort . This will be in ME/CFS genetic research.

    I'm a (dizygotic) twin, but live in The Netherlands. So unfotunately I don't think I can be of any help, but feel free to let me know if I'm wrong.

    I am a identical twin

    I responded to Dr. E's request for twins. Have not heard back.

    Also, I told him about the CFS Twin Study I was in back in the 1995 era done by the Univ of Washington.
    He may be looking over their data. I don't know really. Just that he has not responded.

    The office has been closed for the past 3 days because of Jewish holiday. I'm sure they will see it on Monday. If you still don't hear from them let me know and I'll contact them. I put Fancymyblood in touch with them.

    I am a twin, but am in the UK. Happy to help if they are interested in non-US people.
