NIH VideoCast – Beyond the Symptom: The Biology of Fatigue

In September 2021 the NIH hosted a virtual workshop entitled Beyond the Symptom: Biology of Fatigue to bring together individuals who do research on fatigue, health care providers who see patients with fatigue, and individuals who have fatigue and patient advocates. This workshop was a joint workshop of the NIH Blueprint Neuroscience Research Program and the Sleep Research Society.

£3.2m Funding for DecodeME, the Largest Ever ME/CFS DNA Study

Co-Principal Investigator Dr Luis Nacul, CureME Biobank, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, says: “Unlocking the genetic susceptibility to ME/CFS is a key part of understanding what causes ME/CFS and the disease mechanisms involved. This, in conjunction with other biomedical research into ME/CFS, should finally pave the way to better diagnosis and the development of specific treatments for this debilitating disease.”
