David S. Bell, MD, FAAP, is a Harvard graduate, with an MD degree from Boston University School of Medicine, 1971. In 1978, he began work at the University of Rochester but soon began a private practice in the town of Lyndonville, New York. In 1985 nearly 220 persons became ill with an illness subsequently called chronic fatigue syndrome in the communities surrounding Lyndonville, New York. This illness cluster began a study of the illness which continues today. Dr. Bell is the author or co-author of numerous scientific papers and books on CFS. He has also lectured on the ways ME/CFS affects the neurological and immune systems and the possible explanations for this illness, right down to the body’s ability to handle oxygen at the cellular level. He has been rigorously following the research into the XMRV virus and will be speaking about this research.
