    Next webinar: Thursday May 24th with Dr. Komaroff
    The Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) is pleased to announce the return of our popular webinar series for 2018 with “Hot Areas in ME/CFS Research: 2018presented by Anthony L. Komaroff, MD, Simcox-Clifford-Higby Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Senior Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

    With increased momentum in research over the past two years, this webinar is a timely update to his popular presentation from our 2016 series that addressed current understanding of the role of various systems – including the brain, energy metabolism, genes, and immune system – in the pathophysiology of ME/CFS.

    He is so good at summarizing, I am really looking forward to it. At the same time he is conservative—which is sometimes a little frustrating for patients like me. He has a comprehensive knowledge of the history of this field and a lot of clinical experience, so is very good at evaluating and placing new findings and directions in context, but he won’t jump to conclusions and assert anything as definitely so, ahead of the scientific findings. This keeps him respectable at Harvard and within the medical field as a whole—which is good for us—but I sometimes have wished he would stick his neck out a little bit farther.

    We’ll see where he takes this talk!
