    Great to read Fane’s journey to date. Totally agree how lucky we are to have such people helping. I’ll look forward to hearing more in the future.

    Thank you Fane

    It's a nice uplifting success story. Worth a read. I did not realize how much work he put into his ME/CFS study. Hopefully he will continue to do research in this area.

    The initial B-cell study and PhD were funded by Invest in ME Research:

    :thumbsup: to Jo Cambridge for spotting Fane's potential and to IiMER for engaging Jo's interest in getting involved in finding answers to ME/CFS by inviting her to their 2013 Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium.

    Jo and Fane met Chris Armstrong at the 2016 colloquium, leading to the cross-disciplinary project funded by a grant from Solve ME/CFS Initiative. Fane wrote about this here: http://investinme.org/ce-news-1702-01.shtml
