Discussion in 'General ME/CFS News' started by Kalliope, Feb 26, 2018.
Good questions; I sent this paper to Mohsen, although I believe I've sent it to him in the past.
Another Wednesday and another ScienceWednesday-post from OMF.
This time they are looking at the "omes" in biomedical research and gives an introduction to Genome, Transcriptome, Proteome, Metabolome and Microbiome.
This week's #OMFScienceWednesday post
Many of you have been asking questions about our red blood cell research. For this #OMFScienceWednesday, we examine the difference between RBC shape and RBC deformability, and how they relate to blood flow.
@Kalliope, would you put it link to the OMF website, as well as the Facebook link? That would help the brain-fogged members who are not on Facebook, which I am guessing will be more of us.
Yes, I'll try to remember that. Usually I think it is posted first on Facebook, and after a while on their website. But I agree both links should be added
New Science Wednesday Post from OMF.
Do infections lead to lasting changes in immune or metabolic function that lead to symptoms, or is the pathogen still present? This #OMFScienceWednesday, OMF discusses recently funded research into addressing this central question in ME/CFS.

New Science Wednesday Post from OMF
I have no idea what that means for me as an ME patient!
Same post on OMFs website: OMF funded Severely ill Big Data Study
Up Close with Robert Phair, PhD
On this #OMFScienceWednesday we introduce you to researcher Robert Phair, PhD, running the OMF-funded metabolic trap project. Today, Dr. Phair shares his personal connections and how he became a part of OMF’s End ME/CFS research project.
This week's ScienceWednesday Post from OMF is about the NIH-grant to Ron Davis
OMF: Ron Davis (Finally) Gets His Big Grant (article originally from HealthRising)
OMF: Meet Julie Wilhelmy, ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford Team Member
OMF: Meet Mohsen Nemat-Gorgani, PhD, member of the SGTC Team
On this #OMFScienceWednesday we are pleased to introduce you to a central member of the OMF-funded ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center team at the Stanford Genome Technology Center (SGTC), Mohsen Nemat-Gorgani, PhD. Dr. Nemat-Gorgani is leading a team to investigate the Red Blood Cells (RBC) in ME/CFS patients. Mohsen shared his story with OMF.
Thanks, @Kalliope, a fascinating piece of research.
A new thread on this has been started here:
OMF update - Research on red blood cell deformability.
Meet Rahim Esfanyarpour, PhD, member of the SGTC Team
On this #OMFScienceWednesday we introduce you to Stanford Genome Technology Center team member Rahim Esfandyarpour, PhD. Rahim ‘s ME/CFS research, funded by OMF, is focussed on the development of the nanoneedle as a biomarker for the disease.
On this #OMFScienceWednesday we are happy to introduce a wonderful addition to our team, Michael Sikroa. Michael presented at the recent Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS at Stanford University
