The Campaign to Accelerate CFS Research

Research-campaign-300x292The field of CFS research is at a pivotal time, with opportunities to accelerate the rate of scientific progress. To take advantage of these opportunities, the Solve ME/CFS Initiative has launched the most ambitious independent CFS research initiative in history: The Campaign to Accelerate CFS Research. With the goal of raising $1 million by the end of 2008, this initiative is designed to speed the discovery of biomarkers, better diagnostics and more effective treatments for CFS.

What are some factors that have contributed to — or detracted from—the progress made toward getting CFS recognized as the public health concern it is?
Credibility & Convergence by K. Kimberly McCleary, President & CEO

The scientific investigation of CFS has been under way for more than 20 years. Established facts, new clues and advanced technology are now coming together in promising ways. So what do we know, and where are we headed?
Looking for a Breakthrough by Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD, Scientific Director

With improved public and media awareness of CFS and promising research advances on many fronts, now is the time to spur scientific progress that will translate to better care for CFS patients.
