Action CIND is competing in the annual Aviva Community Fund contest for $100,000 to advance ME and FM research in Canada. Prize money will support the epigenetics research being done by Dr. Patrick McGowan at the University of Toronto to find a biomarker for myalgic encephalomyelitis and fibromyalgia.
The contest has both a public voting phase and a final judging phase. There will be five finalists chosen in the group in which the ME/FM research project is entered. Finalists are selected based on number of votes received. Each finalist is guaranteed to receive $5,000 and have a chance to win $100,000.
The contest has been greatly simplified this year. It just takes a few minutes to register and vote. Registered voters may cast all 18 votes at one time. The voting deadline is October 28, 2016.
