    Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine needs healthy controls for study ending soon
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Less than one week left to find eight healthy female controls to complete the study led by Fereshteh Jahanbani

    Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine needs 8 more female healthy controls ASAP in order to finish a study that has less than one week left.

    Healthy controls in the multi-omics study must women between 20-45 who don't have connective tissue disorders, obesity, diabetes, cancer history, kidney, liver, gallbladder, neurological and GI disorders, as well as CFS, Lyme or any autoimmune illness (as minor as psoriasis and severe sensual allergy). Many of our CFS patients have some of those conditions, and healthy controls without those overlapping conditions are needed for a better study plan. Participants will receive a small donation of a $25 amazon gift card and 'appreciation from the bottom of our heart....for advancing healthcare for 17 million sick people worldwide.'

    If you would like to participate, email Fereshteh Jahanbani at

    Fereshteh from Stanford Genome Technology group also hosts a closed Multi-Ohmics group on Facebook (need to request to join) where she is hosting two polls related to the multi-ohmics study

    1. If you are an ME/CFS patient what is your blood-type


    2. For those that have taken Sam-E what has been the effect on you

    Unfortunately @wigglethemouse , it looks like privacy settings don't allow those Facebook posts to be seen by people who aren't friends of the person or members of the group.

    Shoot. I cannot see them as I have an ad-blocker too, that I couldn't figure out how to turn off.

    Folks on Facebook can join the group by putting in a request at https://www.facebook.com/groups/421053998316485/?ref=group_header
    I hope people can follow that link if they want to participate in the polls.
