    Hey all,

    I'm wondering if someone can give me an idea of what really is out there for research/advocacy for CFS. Is any group aggressively pushing this forward? The deeper I get into research. Which is quite substantial at this point after eight years. I'm really starting to realize that we need more powerful minds in our corner. I have come across a couple people who research in the past month and the levels they have taken me to I didn't think would ever be reached.

    I think we like to think that quite a few outfits are pushing forward. There are individual charities, government research councils, individual research groups and multinational consortia all pushing as hard as they can. Powerful minds are being attracted from other fields - in imaging, infectious disease, immunology, physiology. What is most desperately needed is some sort of consistent lead to follow that can be replicated in labs all over the world and analysed in detail.

    MEpedia has a decent listing of both research and advocacy groups.

    I just saw this headline again, and thought it "rubdown" instead of rundown, and I was like, I could really use a rubdown!
