BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH ONLY BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH ONLY Now that is cleared up, I have obtained the key contacts to pressure the Australian National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) into investing the $5M into biological research only. Samantha Robertson is the Executive Director, Evidence Advice & Governance who is overseeing the formulation of the purpose made ME/CFS research committee & who will comprise that committee. Her email is (don’t say how you got it): Samantha.Robertson@nhmrc.gov.au Her personal assistant for CCing emails is Cathy Connor: ME_CFS@nhmrc.gov.au We don’t want psychologists, psychiatrists, exercise therapists or physiotherapists on the committee. I made it blunt to her & you should too. Secondly, Senator Richard Di Natale has agreed to take over the broader issue from the previous Senator & champion, Scott Ludlam. There will be a Senate Estimates Hearing for health on October 25th Richard has asked me to direct issues & questions I would like raised at this hearing to his health policy advisor Sophie Nicolle. Her email is: Sophie.firstname.lastname@example.org It will probably be Professor Anne Kelso, chief executive of the NHMRC, as the respondent/advisor at the Senate Hearing, but I am guessing Samantha Robertson will be alongside to clarify any ambiguous points.
