Dr Ron Davis and his team at the Stanford Genome Technology Center have received a large research grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that will fund research for 5 years at $500,000 a year and will involve 15 collaborators, 9 of which have never worked in the ME/CFS field before. The research will focus on immunology and T-cell activation in people with ME/CFS. 

 The ROI grant was awarded from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. 

“This is an exciting time for ME/CFS,” said Ron Davis, Director of the Stanford Genome Technology Center at Stanford University and the Open Medicine Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board Director.

    Thank you so much Ron for all your hard work & dedication! I was happy to hear that the NIH grant was finally rewarded to someone who knows & understands the seriousness of this disease! ME took my life away 10 years ago. I’m now 43 years old, and living with my dad who is your age & takes care of me. Although my condition is bad, it is nowhere near as advanced as your son’s. I think of Whitney often & keep him in my prayers.
