    That's what I thought, the $15 million funding announced for 2017 is separate from the RFA funding, which is separate from the amount they are spending on the in house study, and separate from the amount they are offering to researchers who will add ME/CFS as comparison groups in existing studies. They are ramping up.

    Searched for 'PACE' - no results. That's the interesting stuff though!

    Excellent article.

    Great to see this one, along with the three by Miriam Tucker that have just come out in Medscape.

    I know people are very upset with the NIH over so many things but at least they and we are moving in the right direction. $15 million is peanuts but is better than any previous years so it is a start.
