The Ramsay Award Program Has Three Main Objectives:

INVEST in original ideas that could clarify the onset, progression, root causes, and natural history of ME/CFS.

CREATE permissive environments to attract, support, and retain talent in the ME/CFS community and help awardees generate relevant data to compete for long-term federal funding.

FACILITATE collaboration and cross-pollination among dedicated researchers through the sharing of resources and access to additional programming and the organization’s network.
