ME Research UK believes that only biomedical research can find the causes of ME/CFS, improve diagnosis and treatment, and, ultimately, arrive at a cure. That’s why research is our focus. We've awarded 43 grants since 2000 and invested over £1.4 million. But research is expensive and becoming more so every day. That’s the challenge we face, and that’s why we need your help.
