    Reading the RFA on collaborative researcher centers.

    Definitions where post-exertional malaise is required are recommended.

    The section of research areas of interest is pretty good, with a few exceptions as it highlights somatization and personality disorders and does recommend research on mind body approaches for symptom management. That said it seems to be written to cover a broad range of topics, in a sort of "make everyone happy" way. It seems we won't be able to get rid of psychobabble completely. At least for now.
