    The Sheffield events usually are, I watched David Tuller’s recent (or a life time ago) MUS talk after the event.

    [Added - Note - though I could not find it archived on their website, @dave30th ’s talk is still on their Facebook page

    Many thanks to Simon and to the organisers.

    A couple of comments/questions in addition to those that I asked, and were answered, on Zoom.

    1. Has what is listed in the slide below under “what we have discovered so far” been published in peer-reviewed journals? How much has been replicated?

    2. Prof Carding talked about the importance of researching severe ME and the slide above refers to differences in the microbiome “signatures” between severe and mild/moderate ME. However, I note that the proposed FMT trial does not appear to include people with severe ME.

    ——

    I hope there will be more of these Zoom presentations with other ME researchers in future. Excellent way for housebound patients to be able to engage. And much cheaper and more environmentally friendly than flying scientists around the world to attend conferences/symposiums. Maybe something S4ME could try to facilitate? @Andy

    Well, I've got the technology, as I have used Zoom to connect with all the researchers I have spoken with in our Q&As, but unfortunately I don't have the spare time or energy at the moment to organise anything like this.

    And I will see if we can pass along those questions to Simon @Robert 1973
