Research

Solve M.E. invests in innovative scientific studies to address knowledge gaps in ME/CFS, Long Covid and other post-infectious diseases. We fund a portfolio of research projects at some of the most prestigious medical centers and research laboratories in the United States and abroad. We partner with leading experts in the field and build new collaborations.

Our dedication to collaborative ME/CFS research is longstanding and includes initiatives such as Solve Together, which gathers + provides access to patient-provided data, our Ramsay Research Grants, which assist early-career researchers, our partnership with Action for M.E., which funds postdoctoral fellowships, and our groundbreaking collaboration with UCLA, which sponsors leading-edge studies.

Solve M.E. invests in translational research — research that transforms an idea into a study, a study into diagnostics and clinical trials, and clinical trials into approval of available treatments.

Ramsay Research Grant Program

The Ramsay Research Grant Program is the largest source of private, peer-reviewed, research grants in the field of ME/CFS and one of the only avenues researchers have to obtain funding for pilot studies. The Ramsay Program has had huge success in attracting new researchers to the ME/CFS and Long Covid fields and ensuring they stay engaged, while also facilitating applications for larger grants based on promising pilot data.

Since its launch in 2016, Solve M.E. has invested over $1 million in Ramsay Grants, which in turn helped researchers receive over $8 million in additional research funding — a 8X return on the investment. 

Through Ramsay, we’ve built an extensive network of 91 scientists engaged in ME/CFS research, with a growing number of them making meaningful scientific contributions.

Solve Together

Solve Together is a platform designed to collect clinical data about post-infectious diseases. This data is made available to researchers and will be used to identify participants eligible for clinical studies. The platform also empowers patients to make reports for their doctors, connect a health tracking wearable device, and identify their unique symptom and health patterns.
