Trans-NIH Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research: NIH coordinates chronic fatigue syndrome research through a trans-NIH Working Group on Research on Chronic Fatigue. This working group developed an action plan to enhance the status of chronic fatigue syndrome research at the NIH and among the external and intramural scientific communities. The working group held a workshop on grantsmanship in FY 2007 to provide researchers with an overview of funding opportunities, an understanding of the NIH funding process, and an opportunity to meet with program officials. In addition, the Office of Research on Womens Health and a subset of the working group ICs issued an RFA in FY 2006 to explicate how the brain, as the mediator of the various body systems involved, fits into the schema for understanding chronic fatigue syndrome. This RFA solicited proposals from multidisciplinary teams of scientists to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the study of chronic fatigue syndrome in men and women across the lifespan and resulted in seven new research projects on chronic fatigue syndrome.

NIH Funded CFS Research
The following is a compilation of abstracts of NIH grants directly related to CFS. Abstracts are taken from the CRISP database. Most NIH grants are funded for more than one year. Thus, a particular abstract usually appears more than once in this list.
CFS-related grants for the years 1999 - 2004 primarily involve the following topics:
CFS and the cardiovascular system, including neurally mediated hypotension and orthostatic intolerance, as well as clinical trials of medications to treat these conditions. Grants in this category also cover other aspects of potential circulatory dysfunction in CFS, such as muscle blood flow and venous dysfunction.
The epidemiology of CFS, including incidence in community samples, twin studies and CFS in adolescents.
Immunology of CFS, including mechanisms of immunologically mediated fatigue, and involvement of natural killer cells and inflammatory factors.
Neurobiology of CFS, including pathophysiology.
Psychological aspects of CFS, including studies of psychiatric co morbidities and efficacy of cognitive behavior therapy.
CFS Cooperative Research Centers, emphasizing integrated multi-faceted research programs, including studies of the immunology, neurophysiology and genetics of CFS.
Other aspects of CFS, including studies of physiological parameters, virology and sleep disturbance.
Microarrays and Proteomics in MZ Twins discordant for CFS
