Hi. How come none of the money raised by the omf goes on this very very important research? I honestly don't understand. They raise a lot; yet it seems their nano needle study gets nothing, when to me, it seems one of the most important on finding us a possible treatment for this horrid disease.Just in case nobody's seen this, can't see any mention of another thread.
I've started thinking this, sadly. I'm really really confused by it all I see omf getting load of big donations, like millions, but still no movement on the nano needle. There is no logic to this whatsoever.Maybe the nanoneedle is just a made up thing to attract donations.
Do they really get millions of dollars in donations? Like every / each year? How much do they have sitting in their coffers? I thought they always had a bare cupboard as whatever they recieve, they sent out to researchers.I've started thinking this, sadly.

In my experience, Professors always spend most / almost all their time writing grants, seeking funding when "doing research." So, how can it be said that a professor can't do this research b/c he's seeking grants. When that's the same behavior and work / exactly what he would be doing anyway if he had the research ongoing anyway. Perhaps I am wrong and this is different when/if a professor doesn't have a lab, has literally zero funding (even for consumable lab supplies (gloves, etc.)), or has no one working under/with him. Is there not anything a free undergrad can do?Who cares about peer reviewing blah blah. If the money is donated to this specific research, can't the research just be done? I just want us to have an answer. Once that answer is found, then stand up and reap the applause that will come! Surely??!
Choose wisely? Surely this is a wise choice?!? It could diagnose m.e. It shows, objectively, that something very physical is amiss. It has the capacity to discover drugs to help us. I for one think it is a very wise piece of research to use our money for!Folks,
this is not a 1billion $$$ research project. They have to choose wisely where to spend the money. 5 millions, yes, but that's really not that much when it comes to research. Especially if you have to focus on many things. This is a multi-systemic disease of unknown etiology. Publishing and getting peer-reviewed is important. If you want the nano-needle as a medical diagnostic tool, it has succeed studies, just like drugs.
