Hi guys,

Some really amazing news:


OMF-funds ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Uppsala

We are proud to announce that OMF has funded the establishment of a third ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center, at Uppsala University in Sweden.

The new Uppsala Center will be led by OMF Scientific Advisory Board member Jonas Bergquist, MD, PhD and will work synergistically with the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford led by Ronald W. Davis, PhD, and the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Affiliated Hospitals, led by Ronald G. Tompkins, MD, ScD, and Wenzhong Xiao, PhD of Harvard University. All science funded by OMF continues to be under the overall direction of our Scientific Advisory Board, directed by Ron Davis.

This new Collaborative Center focuses on the targeted molecular diagnosis of ME/CFS with the goal of evidence-based strategies for interventions. In Uppsala, significant efforts are being brought to bear on the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid as a unique source of neurochemical biomarkers of ME/CFS. High-resolution mass spectrometry will be used for extremely sensitive detection of endogenous biomolecules. This unique technology, in combination with the development of clinically relevant screening and targeted methods for sampling, will deliver previously unattainable insights into the pathophysiology of ME/CFS.

Will they be testing the metabolic trap hypothesis to know conclusively whether it exists or not ? Any idea how many months that will take ?
