Open Medicine Foundation is funding a Collaborative Research Center! The ME / CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford will be led by Dr. Ron Davis, Professor of Biochemistry and Genetics at Stanford University, and Director of our Scientific Advisory Board.
Dr. Davis has assembled a truly world-class team of researchers, many of whom have never before focused their expertise on ME / CFS, and has planned several innovative projects that will help us to understand the molecular basis of ME / CFS, develop better diagnostics, and discover new treatments. Given the number and quality of investigators that this grant would bring into the field, and the likelihood of groundbreaking discoveries coming from this research, OMF has decided to fund this highly promising proposal.
Although the National Institutes of Health decided against funding this plan as one of their Collaborative Research Centers, we believe this work is too important and too promising not to pursue. We are not willing to miss the opportunity to actively involve a scientific team of this caliber in the field of ME / CFS research. OMF will therefore be supporting the first year of this groundbreaking research with $1.2 million, and we are actively and enthusiastically raising the funds needed to support the remaining 4+ years it will take to complete it.
