Dr Jessica Eccles and her team at Sussex University are keen to recruit healthy controls for their current ME/CFS/FM study. Unaffected family or friends may consider taking part.

The team are looking for healthy volunteers to take part in research which seeks to understand the biological and physical mechanisms of chronic pain and fatigue.

The study involves three study visits to Brighton and Falmer of up to 5.5 hours each, with routine medical procedures, including brain scans, heart rate and blood pressure measurement, upright tilt testing, questionnaires and blood tests.

This project is a collaboration between the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust & Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).

They are seeking healthy volunteers aged 18 or over. You will be reimbursed and receive a copy of your brain scan.

Those interested, please contact the research team on or call Dr Kristy Themelis for further information on 01273 873121.
