    'Dr Mady Hornig’s storming science in ME/CFS at conference in Sweden!'
    http://microbediscovery.org/2016/03...ing-science-in-mecfs-at-conference-in-sweden/

    "Dr Mady Hornig, MD, Director of Translational Research at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University, made a brilliant presentation at the RME Sweden Severe ME conference in late October last year.

    Dr Hornig went into more depth about their published cytokine work, as well as what they are working on and trying to achieve. The talk was jam-packed with great science and information. Dr Hornig talks about the crisis in funding, looking at gene expression and gene variants, screening for up to 1.7 million vertebrate viruses, metabolomics, looking at how the immune system and the microbiome could affect metabolism and the brain – and much, much more!

    Here’s the full transcript of the talk, together with most of the slides. It is a long piece – but very much worth reading! Even if you can’t quite grasp the science, it is almost impossible to not notice the depth and quality of investigation and effort going on with Columbia CII’s research into ME/CFS. Thanks to RME Sweden it is available to be viewed on YouTube."

    Dr Hornig talks about how the immune system and the microbiome could affect metabolism and the brain in the very last part of the talk, so you will have to scroll down for just that info.

    It´s a good talk, I posted it in another thread with reference to the serotonin pathway stuff.
