    I just received a letter today informing me that Dr. Klimas is no longer at UM and will not be seeing patients. I am screwed, and saddend. A Dr. Lauren Fine is taking her place. Anyone else get a letter?

    Hi--this is news indeed! Just to indulge fantasy for a moment, I can think of two institutions that might currently be looking for a medical director--one is obviously the WPI, but the other is the promised clinic to be opening next spring in Vancouver--and Klimas has been collaborating a lot recently with Gordon Broderick at the U of Albeta--since I am hoping to get to that clinic when it opens, that would be really neat! Ah well, one can dream... Chris

    D... I really hope this will turn out to be something positive and not something negative. If she moves to an even better place with more money and more focus on ME/CFS, then it's a good thing, if not...

    The way it happened does not necessarily give me a good feeling, but we will see...

    Klimas has also been in talks with Bond Uni in australia and they are studying her favourite subject, natural killer cells and i believe Bond have another larger research grant coming. Sorry America if she does come over here but u guys have enough cfs gurus over there, we need a few more.

    cheers!!!

    Argh! No! [inconsolable sobbing]

    It would be great if she hooked up with Bond Uni with some major research funding, though. :D

    We're all just guessing at this point. :angel:

    Anything that moves her research along substantially would be a big plus for all PWME, so I hope it is something of that sort.

    As Cort said, I wouldn't worry too much. I've been a Nancy patient at U of M for 15 years and she told me in August that she was negotiating with another university in South Florida which would provide her with better access and funding. I'm not going to name the university because it hasn't been announced and I have not spoken directly to her to confirm anything. I'm sure she'll be getting in contact with all of her patients and there will be an announcement shortly. I believe she's leaving U of M in early December.
