Pandora Org will also be donating a grant to this program to help find a cure. Pandora is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Your donation is tax deductable.

    Read more: Getting “Younger”: Leptin, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia

    Question: Is there a clinic at UAB that Dr. Younger is working with? In other words, is his research being translated into treatment options?

    @Sushi, he's doing trials but there isn't a lot of information in the webinar. No indication of the scale of the trials and what pharmaceutical is being trialled. IIRC they are also investigating botanicals.

    He mentioned elsewhere that they are looking at LDN as well.

    Wish there were a clinic associated with his research. :(

    Should also have said - in case you haven't watched yet - that there is a slide in the webinar with a list of microglial inhibitors

    This is of particular interest to me as I used to work at UAB medical center.

    There is only 7 days left and only $220 collected. This is so disheartening.

    @Sean $1000 from this crowdfund.

    I am hoping to donate tomorrow (brain's mush and it's too late for me tonight).

    @Bob May I suggest you get the title of this page changed. I didnt know who Jarred Younger was so wasnt going to read this. I suggest to get it changed to "Crowdfund for Researcher Jarred Younger" so people know its ME/CFS research trying to get off the ground.

    I think more people then would check out this link.

    Thanks for suggestion, Tania. I've changed the title - please let me know if you think it could be improved.

    The total is currently at $585, which is excellent. In 2 days we've raised $365. :woot::thumbsup:

    If anyone can spare $10 or $20, please consider donating. It would be amazing if we could get nearer the $1000 goal in the next 5 days.
