    GWI seems to get a bunch more funding despite affecting way less people than ME.

    One soldier in 3 from the Gulf War is still afflicted with Gulf War Illness. Certainly the Department of Defense has been helpful in providing research funding.

    Hopefully, this grant reflects on some success they've seen in their recent GWI trial. They're looking to do something similar in relation to ME, but are having trouble finding funding. In a video posted on this thread, Dr. Klimas said that a Parkinson's group had agreed fund a small ME/CFS trial in exchange for Nova Southeastern looking into Parkinson's using their sophisticated computational biology system. [I think I got that right.]

    Klimas also mentioned recently that an ME/CFS patient had helped raise half the money needed for the ME/CFS Men's subgroup pilot trial, which she said should be enough to at least get started on it, hopefully by the end of this year. Exciting stuff!

    @Snowdrop thank u for the links. But if I donate how can I make sure it goes to ME/ Cfs men's trial? Maybe I will contact Nova first...

    I'm sorry but I don't know specifically. I'm not even sure that you can donate to a specific trial although the question is a reasonable one. An example of how universities and other institutions could be more open with information.

    I could also not find a specific email for Nancy Klimas. Just the general one for NSU. So the only thing I can suggest is the general email with the specif question directed at INIM.

    In general the rights of people donating time/money or whatever (to be provided info) is not really on the radar of those who receive the gifts. Apologies for my comment being off the topic of your question.
