Working Group Meeting – September 26-28, 2018

On this #OMFScienceWednesday, we’re excited to highlight that over 50 scientists will gather for a 3-day Working Group Meeting on the Molecular Basis of ME / CFS …

Open Medicine Foundation is sponsoring a three day focused scientific meeting with a growing group of excellent scientists with diverse expertise prior to the September 29th Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME / CFS at Stanford University.

Over 50 scientists from all over the world will gather at Stanford from September 26 to September 28 to present their latest findings and ideas. These presentations will be interspersed with in-depth discussions, brainstorming of new ideas and next steps, and developing targeted strategies to find answers. Old collaborations will be intensified; new collaborations launched.

The working group meeting will emphasize collaboration, open sharing of unpublished data and constructive feedback and critiques in a friendly environment working towards a common goal. The meeting will continue during coffee breaks, lunches, and dinners for three full days.

OMF is pleased to procure funding for this unique platform for open collaboration and open sharing of data and ideas, unprecedented in ME / CFS research. Our ultimate goal is to accelerate research finding answers and solutions to this dreadful disease.

We will share the working group agenda daily during these meetings. Please check our website and social media to follow these meetings. Specific data won’t be shared, but you will be able to keep track of who is speaking.
