From their Facebook post. Solve MECFS Initiative 18 hrs · SMCI President Carol Head met with NIH/NINDS Program Director Vicky Whittemore this week. Vicky confirmed two funding mechanisms for ME/CFS are making their way through the Trans-NIH Working Group. Both NINDS and NIAID are fully on board, having committed funding, while other institutes are still working through the process. Vicky remains confident that funding for ME/CFS research will come through. Regarding last week’s congressional sign-on letter, Vicky believes that the NIH must respond to Congress and that the letter truly does matter. Kudos to all who worked so hard to make it happen.
