There are plans for an ME Research Collaborative (previously CMRC) conference later this year (September, if possible). We are currently putting together a draft agenda in the hope of approaching potential funders. The dates are not yet fully fixed. The conference will be hybrid (in-person and virtual), or virtual if an in-person conference is not viable. This will be a research/scientific conference open to academics and researchers, clinicians, and patients/carers. The overall aim is the sharing of current knowledge from an international field, promoting collaboration, and providing a catalyst for future research in post-viral conditions (M.E and also LC), including embedding patient and public involvement (PPI). We are currently collating names of potential speakers/presenters. Please use this thread to suggest presenters who could be contacted. To make my life easier, please provide: The name of the potential speaker (or give the name of a research lab, company, etc.); The contact details if you know them (preferably an email address); A few words on their research field / area of expertise; Their location (particularly if it's not obvious). A reminder that the main MERC thread is here: https://www.s4me.info/threads/united-kingdom-me-research-collaborative-merc-was-cmrc-news.2809/ Thanks!
