Two Nobel Laureates have joined the international efforts to solve the mysteries of ME/CFS.

Human geneticist Mario Capecchi, who won Nobel Prize in 2007, and 1962 Nobel Laureate James Watson – who worked with Crick and Wilkins in Cambridge to unravel the structure of DNA – have both joined the Scientific Advisory Board of the US-based Open Medicine Foundation, set up to power-drive research into neuro-immune diseases including chronic fatigue syndrome, ME, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The eight-member board, chaired by Professor Ronald W Davis, also includes Dr Andreas Kogelnik, founder and director of the Open Medicine Institute which held an invitation-only scientific meeting in New York two years ago attended by Dr Charles Shepherd, medical adviser to the ME Association.

  1. This is wonderful news. The drive and momentum to unravel the mysteries of ME is very encouraging. I still can’t find Chronic Fatigue Syndrome under Neurological Conditions in the NICE Guidelines though. Can you help please/
    Thank you
