    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research Center at Stanford University
    Second Annual Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS

    Sponsored by Open Medicine Foundation

    Come hear from our amazing team in person!
    A unique opportunity to learn from and interact with these world-class scientists.

    Visit Community Symposium for event details.

    This exciting symposium will follow our collaborative team meeting of world-renowned scientists.

    This year our collaborative team meeting will be expanded to three days. The first two days will allow for in-depth scientific discussion of recent ME/CFS research results. On the third day we will establish collaborations and discuss the most effective path forward to
    expedite ME/CFS research.

    At the Community Symposium, the scientists will update patients and any interested members of the public on our progress towards understanding the molecular basis of ME/CFS and our plans for the future.

    Only together can we solve this incredibly complex and horrific disease.
    Please register as soon as possible! Space is limited. Registration closes September 15, 2018.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Sorry if it sounds rude. One year back I had high hopes on OMF. But now ....:bang-head:

    I still have very high hopes for them and they truly have the dream-team of scientists, doctors and researchers. I wish them the best for an amazing conference.

    Would you care to elaborate in any way possible? I don’t understand to be frank.

    A 2nd Symposium from a team relying solely (apart from the recent NIH for T Cell research grant) on donations with such a team of amazing scientists is a rather amazing achievement in itself, let alone the continuing wide breadth of research that is taking place due to people’s continuing donations.


    Thanks,


    B

    Last year was the highlight of the ME/CFS part of my life. Gonna be hard to top that guest list, though! I'm hopeful we'll get deeper insights this year.

    I still have high hopes for the OMF, but I've been sick a long time and am realistic about how these things take, sadly, a lot of time.
