    The 7th Invest in ME Biomedical Research into Colloquium (BRMEC7) with the objective to increase international collaboration in research into ME will take place in London over the two days 31st May-1st June 2017 before the 12th Invest in ME International ME Conference (IIMEC12) on 2nd June 2017.

    Chairing and participating in the meeting will be members of the Invest in ME Research Scientific Advisory Board and the newly formed European ME Research Group ((EMERG).

    IiMER hope to have representation from most of the main biomedical research initiatives now occurring throughout the world. The first participant to be announced is Dr Vicky Whittemore from USA National Institutes of Health. She will be returning to give keynote speeches at the 7th Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium (#BRMEC7) and the 12th International ME Conference 2017 ((#IIMEC12)

    If you are a researcher and are interested in attending the BRMEC* Colloquiums you can contact the charity (Invest in ME Research) to discuss this - http://www.investinme.eu/BRMEC Colloquiums.shtml

    There are also opportunities to sponsor the colloquium including the possibility for exhibition tables and publicity materials and networking with delegates at BRMEC7.

    By sponsoring this event - which includes a dinner for all researchers and two full days of discussions - one will help make progress the research into this disease. Details here - http://investinme.eu/IIMEC12-sponsorship.shtml

    (There's a separate thread for IIMEC12 at http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...-2017-registration-is-open.47326/#post-795919 so I've started this thread just for the two day colloquium).

    Hi @Sasha that was a direct c&p from a comment by IiMER on their facebook post, so I don't think they're presenting at the conference (unless they present jointly with Mella and Fluge) and if they are presenting at the colloquium, the agenda isn't up yet, so I don't know yet - http://investinme.eu/BRMEC Colloquiums.shtml#brmec7

    For some reason, I'm not being shown an edit (or delete) option on any of the above, so an update here that Beth Unger from CDC will take part in the events, and the Norwegian Health Directorate will be represented. News page - http://www.investinme.eu/IIMEC12-news.shtml

    The Norsk Helsedirektoratet (Norwegian Directorate of Health) will participate in the #BRMEC7 Colloquium and #IIMEC12 Conference events and hopefully some journalists from Europe.

    Invest in ME Research has also extended invitations to the Canadian Minister for Health Jane Philpott and the Canadian National Research Council – and to the Dutch Health Council.
