Microbe Discovery Project Launches Crowdfunding for ME/CFS Microbiome Study

Microbe Discovery Project Launches Crowdfunding for ME/CFS Microbiome Study
"I think that the microbiome is going to be where the action is [in ME/CFS] ...  I am really eager to pursue that work." ~Dr. W. Ian Lipkin

WE CAN DO IT!

In the past year our ME/CFS community has shown that it can rapidly raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for specific projects. After patients and supporters in Norway – with a population sixty times smaller than that of the US – raised $430,000 in 90 days for a clinical trial of Rituximab, a slew of US campaigns began crowdfunding and reached or exceeded their targets at astonishing speeds: $213,000 in 31 days for the documentary film Canary in a Coal Mine; $18,000 in 35 days for the documentary The Blue Ribbon; and $150,000 in 75 days for an Open Medicine Foundation study of Vitamin B12.

So, we can do this and we can do it quickly. Please donate now, from any country, so we can all benefit from the results of the study; Dr. Lipkin’s prestige is such that his findings will have international impact and help all of us. Tell your friends, your family and your local community to donate and spread the word.

Together, we can do this!



ME/CFS: a devastating neuro-immune disease as disabling as multiple sclerosis, affecting one million Americans and 17 million people worldwide.

The study: a cutting-edge hunt for the causes of ME/CFS in the gut “microbiome” – the bacteria, viruses and fungi in the digestive system – led by “the world’s most celebrated virus hunter”, Dr W. Ian Lipkin at the world’s largest and most advanced center for microbe discovery and diagnosis at Columbia University in New York.

The payoff: a world-class study with the potential to swiftly lead to treatments using drugs, probiotics or exclusion diets.

Our challenge: to raise $1.27 million (£760,000; €910,000) to fund the project and do it fast! The scientists are ready to go and can complete and publish the study within 12 months. The sooner we fund it, the sooner it starts.
