    Highlights for me are

    Dr Jo Cambridge - B-cell biology and ME/CFS
    presumably this is the fascinating set up work for the UK Rituximab trial, aiming to find subsets that are likely to respond

    Dr Oystein Fluge / Professor Olav Mella - Multi-centre Rituximab, Clinical Trial for ME/CFS

    Professor Mady Hornig - Markers of Immunity and Metabolism in ME/CFS
    Mady has talked about this a lot - I'm guessing this will be presenting data from a new study

    Professor Betsy Keller - Molecular markers before/after exercise/Activity guidelines to avoid symptom flares
    We've seen VO2 max etc data, this looks like exploring what might be going on in the body to account for the strange exercise results.

    Dr John Chia - Enterovirus Research in ME/CFS
    The forgotton man of ME/CFS research - wonder if he has new data? Tony Komaroff has previously said this is one study crying out for replication.
