Experts in neurovirology and orthostatic intolerance will take the lead for the fourth annual UK CFS/ME Research Collaborative (CMRC) conference, which will this year be held in Bristol on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 September. This year’s conference focuses on the biology of ME and how researchers can work together collaboratively to further research it.
Check out the the event programme for full information.
The two-day CMRC conference is open to professional and student researchers (undertaking a research associated programme at an academic institution), and CMRC Associate Members – that’s anyone with an interest in M.E. who isn’t a researcher. It’s free to become an Associate Member: see the ‘Join the CMRC’ section on AfME’s website to download an application form.
Registration for the 2017 CMRC conference for Associate Members is £45 for each. As the CMRC does not receive enough income to cover costs, it has to ask for this contribution, which is heavily subsidised to enable access to the conference for people with M.E. If you are unable to meet the cost of the ticket but would still like to attend, please contact the CMRC (via Action for M.E.) to request a full/ partial waiver

“I am very excited to attend the CMRC conference and welcome the chance to talk about our research with other researchers from around the world. ME/CFS can turn a life of productive activity into one of dependency and desolation, and it is only through collaboration that we can challenge the horrors of this very real disease and improve lives for the thousands of patients living with it on a daily basis.” Professor Jose Montoya.
