After lunch Ron gave a long talk with his ideas on what is important and how to make faster progress. Collaborate. Find experts when you don't know something. Include experts in diverse fields. Make NIH aware that this is scary and anyone can get the life sentence of this disease

Ron: Meet again annually in open sharing. Keep doing discovery and start applying what we are learning to treatments. Focus on why we are doing this, aim for helping patients, not just publications. Always remember patients. #mecfs18

Mohsen Nemat-Gorgani , who has worked with Ron for 15 years and is a membrane expert, introduced his work on red blood cell deformability and he and his team presented updated results. #mecfs18
Am struggling to remember but has a paper been submitted on this? I seem to remember it in a bio posted about Dr Nemat-Gorgani

Love the mutual respect and appreciation between Ron Davis' and Øystein Flute. Ron admiring the approach and curiosity that was shown by the Norwegians in persuing initial findings that so many others would have ignored. #MECFS18
