Applying for a Grant
The Solve M.E. Ramsay Grant Program, initiated in 2016, funds pilot studies into myalgic encephalomyelitis (formerly known as chronic fatigue syndrome, or ME/CFS). Each grant award typically ranges between $35,000 and $55,000 for a one-year period, with the possibility of renewal for projects yielding promising results. Submitted proposals are subject to a double-blind peer review process to ensure that only applications of the highest merit are selected.
Ramsay 2019 marks the fourth cycle of the program and we are at a very pivotal moment at both this juncture in the Program and the ME/CFS research landscape as a whole. The broad scientific domains of immunology, metabolism, the microbiome, genetics, and neurology are central to ME/CFS research, but a lack of researchers working on the disease remains a major barrier to progress; a fact that was recently emphasized by experts in the field at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) “Accelerating Research on ME/CFS” conference.
Are you a researcher motivated by complex scientific questions?
Do you want to join a dynamic network of researchers working on behalf of people who live with a debilitating chronic disease?
