    This is really good news, especially getting something major going in a country outside the USA. The research sounds interesting, I’m glad they have funds for it and on top of the Australian news it’s been quite a positive day for ME.

    I've been meaning to ask - have there been any metabolic studies of cerebral spinal fluid yet? I remember hearing about one, I think but I can't remember.

    There was one study about proteomics in the cerebrospinal fluid. Professor Bergquist was a coauthor:
    Schutzer SE, Angel TE, Liu T, et al. Distinct Cerebrospinal Fluid Proteomes Differentiate Post-Treatment Lyme Disease from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. PLoS One. 2011;6(2):e17287.

    The article is open access: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0017287

    Dr Natelson talked about his current studies on the CDC call recently. He has already collected CSF samples to do a proteomics study.

    The local newspaper Upsala Nya Tidning has an article about the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center today.

    Forskning kring ME får centrum i Uppsala
    google translation: Research into ME gets a center in Uppsala

    The Uppsala Center will be the third funded by the Open Medicine Foundation and the first to be located outside the US. The first two are linked to Stanford university and Harvard university.

    - However, our center is much smaller than these, at least initially. The funds will initially be used to finance a doctoral student service, which is the first of its kind in Swedish ME research, says Jonas Bergquist.

    The three centers will cooperate with each other, although based on a small number of different research profiles. The platform in Uppsala will primarily research around so-called biomarkers in the spinal fluid in patients with ME.
