The Open Medicine Foundation is spearheading chronic complex disease research that follows patterns of success and benefits from collaborating with leading scientists and clinicians from around the globe. These experts bring to our foundation their expertise in immunology, virology, genomics, informatics, molecular biology, epidemiology, infectious disease, oncology, pathology, and clinical medicine. The current focus is on ME / CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / systemic exertion intolerance disease), with the expectation that discoveries in this disease will bring answers to other diseases that share some of the symptoms (such as fibromyalgia and Chronic Lyme Disease).
The End ME/CFS Project encompasses OMF funded and facilitated research conducted within six ME/CFS Collaborative Research Centers (CRCs). OMF’s guiding strategy focuses on open, collaborative research so that precise diagnostic tools and life-changing treatments can be available to people with related chronic complex diseases as soon as possible. View the progress being made at their six collaborative research centers now.
ME/CFS is a life-altering, complex multi-system disease that is difficult by many to understand. Read up on Open Medicine Foundation’s quick facts and symptom guide to learn more about the effects of this devasting disease.
