    Hello from the Solve ME/CFS Initiative. We want to share our latest news and research with you, but we also want to respect your space and not spam the forums. In order to do that, we are starting a monthly thread where will we add all of the latest news from SMCI. Throughout the month we plan to use this thread to post our latest news and research.

    Preliminary Results from Ramsay 2016 Projects - Teams 2 & 4

    In 2016, Solve ME/CFS Initiative launched the first cycle of the Ramsay Award Program. The Ramsay Awards are foundational to SMCI’s commitment to explore worthy research avenues. This program aims to move the field forward by funding innovative research across many disciplines, bring new researchers in the myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) field, and provide seed dollars so that researchers can go on to obtain funds for larger studies in their areas of expertise.

    We are pleased to announce the first group of research teams funded by the Ramsay Awards are beginning to report results. In this edition, we feature results from two Ramsay 2016 Teams. We look forward to providing a full report out following the publication of the study outcomes. READ MORE
