I want to put together a newcomer's guide to ME/CFS researchers. I intend to list some of the top researchers and, for each, include a one-paragraph bio summarizing their work. When I first found this site about a year ago, I was unfamiliar with most of the researchers discussed here, and have gradually built up my knowledge by Googling the names as I came across them. I thought I might save future newcomers the trouble and put together a brief guide. So I'm appealing to the collective wisdom of the board about who should be on the list. My criteria is simply that anyone listed must be a true researcher, not a clinician alone, and that he/she must contribute significantly to the medical literature. I probably have to limit it to the "heavy weights" to prevent the list from growing out of control. Maybe 10 to 12 people is a good number. Off the top of my head, I'd probably include: Klimas, Cheney, Peterson, Myhill, Bateman, Montoya, Kogelnik, Chia, and of course the late, great Rich Van Konynenberg. Who am I missing? We need some Aussies and more Brits on the list. I apologize for my ignorance there. Do you think Teitelbaum belongs on the list? How about Garth Nicholson? Thanks in advance for any help you can give. And please don't hesitate to second or third someone's recommendation because if I haven't heard of someone and they only get one vote, I might be less inclined to include them.
