I wrote Dr Lipkin about a week ago to ask what's up with the Microbiome Discovery project. No reply.
We have an ME/CFS biorepository in place at our contract site which we call BioSEND. It's a biorepository that is located at Indiana University and we have specimens there from the CFI funded study [Mady Hornig (PI), Ian Lipkin] and we're just in the process of adding the clinical data and will very soon make those biospecimens available to the research community and we also have a proposed pilot to add additional biospecimens that we're working on right now that will greatly expand the number of biospecimens that are in BioSEND and will be available to investigators.
