    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.

    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.

    I hope I can attend again. Last year's truly gave me hope for the first time in a long time. The progress these folks have made in 2 years is astonishing, compared to the past decades of researchers playing, "blind men and the elephent"!

    spelling and m e their not on the best of terms. writing any long posts always gives me lots of red lines and then a headache from trying to correct all the errors.

    No norwegians? That's a shame. I want an update!!

    No sign of their papers being published yet sadly. They suggested the cyclo paper would come out in the first half of this year, (I began eagerly expecting it around 10 months ago!) I really hope the Rituximab result hasn't taken the wind out of their sails.

    Do you think the researchers from Columbia University could make it or be invited if they haven't been? It seems they have put out some good info recently...
