Solve M.E. is accepting applications to study ME/CFS and Long Covid from April 9 – May 23, 2022.
Through the Ramsay Program, Solve M.E. invests in research studies in ME/CFS or Long Covid with a particular emphasis on engaging young investigators and researchers new to the field. This year, we are accepting applications for projects that aim to explore the mechanisms at play in people who go on to develop Long COVID. Collaborative proposals (involving 2 or more research groups) are encouraged.
Ramsay 2022 marks the sixth cycle of the program, and we are excited to continue offering our rich longitudinal data set in the You + ME Registry.
Previously funded research includes:
· Dr. Jarred Younger from the University of Alabama at Birmingham found metabolite and temperature differences in the brains of people with ME/CFS and received a multi-year NIH R01 grant to run a larger neuroimaging study.
· Dr. Dawei Li used preliminary data from his ongoing Ramsay study on endogenous retroviruses to secure a NIH R21 grant to expand this work.
· Drs. Liisa Selin and Anna Gil from the University of Massachusetts Medical School examined the role of specific T cells in ME/CFS and used their pilot data to secure a five-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
