Science for ME are delighted to present our latest Q&A, this time with Professor Chris Ponting. Professor Chris Ponting is Chair of Medical Bioinformatics, Edinburgh University and a Principal Investigator at the MRC Human Genetics Unit, Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, as well as Deputy Chair of the CMRC. As discussed in this thread, Prof Ponting has already analysed the genetic data available in the UK Biobank (not to be confused with the UK ME/CFS Biobank) and found evidence that suggests a genetic component in those people who report being diagnosed with CFS. He has also secured funding from Action for ME and the Scottish Government for a replication of the findings from Dr Mark Davis on T-cells, announcement thread and thread on SimonM's blog on the subject. As announced relatively recently, Prof Ponting has a direct connection to ME, having been friends with SimonM for a long time. Questions were originally collected in this thread, the ten most 'popular' questions were then put to Prof Ponting.
