    Some issues with sound quality, especially with the Q&A video.

    Dr Vallings (eclectic overview of international research, nothing new in there):

    Prof Tate (presentation of his team's work, mostly published, but some may be unpublished?):

    Q&A (both, but mostly Prof Tate):

    I knew Prof Tate had a daughter with ME but I didn't realise he had two family members with ME :(.

    He describes how funding is very difficult, often wondering how he is going to continue to pay wages. One nice story was that he had a South Island farmer phone him up and they got in a bit of a heated debate about ME. Following that the farmer donated 100,000 to his research and followed up right before this talk with another significant donation.

    Here is the last slide showing what was planned for 2020

    He would also like to try and replicate the Stanford IDO2 gene testing to see if his cohort of patients also have those mutations.

    He has samples stored from people taken monthly and would like to compare "good" samples with "relapsed" ones to see if he can find something that is significantly changed.
