OMF grants $1.2M to Ramp Up Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University

OMF grants $1.2M to Ramp Up Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University
From the Open Medicine Foundation

We are proud to announce funding for the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University led by Ronald W. Davis, PhD, Director of our Scientific Advisory Board.
 
Dr. Davis has assembled a world-class team of scientists, many of whom have never before focused their expertise on ME/CFS, and has planned several innovative projects that will help us to understand the molecular basis of ME/CFS, develop better diagnostics, and discover new treatments. Given the number and quality of investigators that this grant would bring into the field, and the likelihood of groundbreaking discoveries coming from this research, OMF has decided to fund this highly promising proposal.
 
Although the National Institutes of Health decided against funding this plan as one of their Collaborative Research Centers, we believe this work is too important and too promising not to pursue. The opportunity to bring a scientific team of this caliber into the field of ME/CFS research is not one we are willing to miss, and we have heard from many of you who agree! That’s why we are funding the first year of this vital work with a $1.2 million grant that we have raised from our generous patient community.
 
We need your support for this amazing team to continue beyond year 1 to complete these projects. One year of funding is enough to make significant progress, but these ambitious projects will require multiple years to complete and publish. To support and maintain this groundbreaking research, please donate today.
 
The ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford will work on three projects that are critical and fundamental to understanding this disease and developing diagnostics and treatments:
  1. T cells and the molecular immunology of ME/CFS
Sequencing single T cells and discovering their targets
  1. Extended big data study in families
Genome sequencing, gene expression, metabolomics, cytokines, clinical features, and more
  1. Developing blood-based diagnostic and drug screening technology
Enabling fast, inexpensive diagnosis of ME/CFS and discovery of new treatments
 
To learn more about the scientific plan for these projects and the outstanding team that makes up the Collaborative Research Center, please visit our website.
