    Here's your chance to see @Jonathan Edwards without any paint on him (presumably)!

    thanks @Jonathan Edwards . I would thank Charles and Drs Cliff and Nacul but they are not members here. I hope they might consider joining, we can be a very welcoming bunch and it's good to have something positive going on in the UK.

    Somebody (memory, memory o_O) said that in a few days, the LSHTM CureME group will be announcing a Justgiving fundraiser for £10k to raise money to fund a study to be run using biobank samples (researchers will have to apply and have their application assessed). I think a stretch-goal may be £25k, if I've got that right.

    Wondering if the live streaming is an Unrest thing or LSTM. Good if other medical school events are also live streamed I want to see the Sheffield one

    Okay, it's no longer live (have they got spies here?!) but if you go back to the start, there's quite a long recording of someone laying out the table. It's nearly as good as the biscuit talk.

    I forgot when it was on, but from the link above I've just watched the panel answering questions. It starts at about 3 hours 25 mins into the recording. Good overview of what the biobank is doing. They will be doing a Just Giving Christmas appeal.

    This link still works and takes you straight to the discussion.

    very interesting QandA. I didn't realise that the Biobank don't have samples from children. Another reason why Crawley is so keen on the MEGA biobank idea(?)

    Question: Dr Jackie Cliff (Biobank researcher) said that they had not found evidence of the Natural Killer Cell problem; but in Unrest, Nancy Klimas says this is something she found......

    Which is right? Have I misunderstood(?) @alicec @Woolie @Hip

    Can't remember seeing anything about the brief exchange between Jonathan Edwards ad Charles Shepherd about NICE in the Q&A at the bio bank. Seemed like they or at least Charles are aware of more positive developments to come. I can only think that either
    - NICE are going to put interim wording in place about GET/CBT
    Or
    - the new guidelines committee is being constituted and there are some good biomedical people signed up

    My understanding is that there is no consensus that there is low NK cell activity in PWME. There have been too many inconsistencies and failures to replicate results.

    I believe there is an international study which is trying to replicate results but really I am not up with the latest.

    @Jonathan Edwards should know more about this.
