    "Open Medicine Foundation is sponsoring a three-day focused scientific meeting with a growing group of excellent scientists with diverse expertise prior to the September 29th Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS at Stanford University.

    Over 50 scientists from all over the world will gather at Stanford from September 26 to September 28 to present their latest findings and ideas. These presentations will be interspersed with in-depth discussions, brainstorming of new ideas and next steps, and developing targeted strategies to find answers. Old collaborations will be intensified; new collaborations launched.

    The working group meeting will emphasize collaboration, open sharing of unpublished data and constructive feedback and critiques in a friendly environment working towards a common goal. The meeting will continue during coffee breaks, lunches, and dinners for three full days.

    OMF is pleased to fund this unique platform for open collaboration and open sharing of data and ideas, unprecedented in ME/CFS research. Our ultimate goal is to accelerate research finding answers and solutions to this dreadful disease.

    We will post the working group agenda daily on our website and social media during these meetings.

    The problem is that we are currently discovering all the "different faces" of ME/CFS but not their cause.

    I had a look on the FB Page and was trying to look for "clues" from the presentation slides.

    -The Presentation title slide by Alan Light looks quite interesting. Title : "Mitochondrial, immune and autoimmune gene mutations synergize as risk factors for ME/CFS". Definitely something to look at IMHO.

    -The presentation slide by Rob Phair is "Metabolic TrapS" as opposed to "Metabolic Trap". So we are looking at many traps as opposed to one? (I don't want to suggest that this is necessarily a bad thing)
