    Opening paragraphs:
    But here's the part that caught my eye:
    Whoa, only a $2 million rise for 2017? :nervous: Can anyone confirm or deny those numbers?

    If the paltry $2 million increase is confirmed then maybe this needs a new thread? But I'm really hoping that someone will say, don't worry, the reporter got his figures wrong.

    I did not expect NIH funding for ME/CFS to rise to parity (e.g., $250 million) in a single year. I did expect the rise to be more than that. :(:aghhh:

    I don't think anybody knows the figure yet. Maybe the reporter is basing his estimate on grants that are already secured.

    Let's hope they missed a zero off.
