A couple of CFSACs ago - that awful one where our patient rep got so distressed about the way she felt threatened - I think the NIH rep (?) said that ME/CFS biomedical research applications were getting turned down because of their poor quality (!). I think I also heard someone at that meeting (Dr Fletcher?) or elsewhere (Dr Klimas?) say that lots of their research in their other disease areas (such as HIV) get funded by the NIH - it's only when they apply for ME/CFS grants that they get rejected. Can anyone direct me to quotes or to Youtube footage (preferably telling me roughly when it comes up)? Thanks!
