Professor Pinching, previously at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, has had a long and distinguished career as an immunologist – the latter part of which has been devoted to serving people with ME/CFS. He was deputy chairman of the expert working group which produced the Chief Medical Officer's Report on ME/CFS in January 2002 which acknowledged the depth and severity of the illness and called for urgent attention to be paid to it.
