Dr. Daniel Peterson Launches His Own ‘CFIDS/ME’ Research Foundation

Dr. Daniel Peterson, MD, (the “Peterson” of Whittemore-Peterson Institute in Reno, NV) has officially founded a nonprofit research foundation of his own  – Simmaron Research, Inc. (http://simmaronresearch.org) – which is asking for donations to fund pilot studies in pursuit of diagnostic markers & treatments for “CFIDS/ME.” Seemingly not in collaboration with WPI research.

According to the Simmaron Research Inc. site:

• “The state of the science is on the verge of discovering diagnostic markers that can be translated into tests and treatments for CFIDS/ME.”

• Studies that the Incline Village, NV-based Foundation hopes to fund will benefit from “Dr. Peterson’s repository of more than 1,000 patient biological samples and records,” which he has collected over 25 years seeing patients.

• Contributions to Simmaron will be used to cover overhead and fund pilot studies which can then, if they produce promising results, attract added funding for continued study from government, university, and commercial sources.

• These pilot studies might be conducted with such researchers as Dr. Sonya Marshall, et al. at Bond University of Australia, and Dr. Konnie Knox at Wisconsin Vital Research.

  1. RENOSPARKS says:

    Dr Peterson resigned from the WPI March 2010. People still think that he is associated with WPI and that he is still collaberating with them. He is not. His emphasis is on patient diagnosis and treatments and this foundation is his vision of how to better care for people suffering with CFS/ME and other neuroimmune disorders. Dr Peterson’s only association with the WPI is that his name is on the building and in the title of the institute.
