Funding ME/CFS Research

At the Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI), our mission is to make ME/CFS widely understood, diagnosable and treatable. In 2008, we began a competitive research funding process with rigorous review, focus on biomarker discovery, biomarker validation and treatment of ME/CFS.

These researchers have delivered results important to accelerating progress for ME/CFS patients:
