    This is the abstract for an MSc thesis. It is great to see biomedicine students interested in ME!

    Inspired/influenced by her advisor Warren Tate I would imagine, who also researches ME/CFS.

    Excellent and note this is only a masters thesis , let's hope they get funded for a Phd. I know for a fact that the neurological foundation that supports warrens Alzheimer's research turned down applications for studying ME . ANZMES has been left trying to find it .
    More from prof Tate at invest in ME conf

    Looks great! A researcher with a lot of potential to help us.

    Interesting that the performance of ME/CFS cells seemed to be the same as people with MS. Not sure what to make of that.

    The next study Alexandra Noble is doing is looking at the mitochondria of ME patients. I think I posted some specifics in another thread. @Jill unfortunately this next study has been turned down for funding by the department that funds Chronic disease research.

    Typical . Terrible thing is they prob don't even know what ME is .
    I've been gradually educating the clinical director at middlemore , not that any of the staff there are anybthe wiser really .
