    Dr Christopher Armstrong is an Australian scientist researching Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). He moved to California late last year to take up a position at the Open Medicine Foundation.

    Previously Dr Armstrong worked on biochemistry and molecular biology in the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute at the University of Melbourne. He researched ME for eight years at the University of Melbourne, where he completed a PhD to pioneer the application of metabolomics.

    We also talked about his community and political engagement:

    “Patients have been patient for long enough.”

    "researchers to create surveys target specific participants", might have meant to be "researchers to create surveys targeted to specific participants" perhaps?

    Have listened to this now. Nothing really new, apart from Chris' background of which I was unaware, but a nice, thoughtful and wide-ranging discussion.

    That was an interesting presentation. Except that it didn't make clear which projects were just a plan and which were actually happening.

    So I looked on the website (https://www.omf.ngo/omf-australia/) and it looks like the only study currently underway is the Ocular Motor study (confusingly with a wrong blurb on the intro page). Unless the website is not up to date, all the other OMF Australia studies seem to be still at various stages of planning.

    The ocular study discussed in the video is progressing though:

    The project on young people, the 'good day, bad day' study is a big project funded by the NHMRC in 2020. As far as I am aware, it is underway.
