New $1 million donation for OMF's ME/CFS research!

Hi guys,

Even more good news-what a week!


New $1 million donation for ME/CFS research!

Dear all,

OMF received a $1 million anonymous pledge to escalate Ron Davis’s systems biology approach with Robert Phair, PhD, at the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University.

This will expand the search for and testing of their “metabolic trap” hypothesis, and will enable Dr. Davis to hire an additional scientist with experience in complex metabolic analysis to accelerate this research. Watch for research updates to keep informed about their progress on this exciting project.

For more information on this project click here.

With hope for all,


Linda Tannenbaum
