    The Solve ME/CFS Initiative is launching the Ramsay Award Program, a research grants competition open to basic scientists and clinical researchers interested in studying ME/CFS. The award is named after Myalgic Encephalomyelitis pioneer Dr. A. Melvin Ramsay, who was the recognized authority in ME from 1955 until his death in 1990, and whose sound descriptions of the disease have stood the test of time.

    Our organization’s previous grant program had a three-year cycle; our current plans are to make grant awards annually. Individual awards are expected to range between $35,000 and $55,000 made for a one-year period, with the possibility of renewals to projects yielding promising results. Submitted proposals will undergo a rigorous, peer-review process to select the most meritorious applications.

    Yes, they also had a link in newsletter to a person who donated again, this time 150K. What it is going to be used for, not certain.

    I honestly can't believe the change at what used to be the CFIDS Association. I don't know what happened, what prompted the ouster of McCleary and Vernon, but "Solve" sure feels like an advocacy organization again. It's encouraging.
