ME/CFS Biobank: Free samples and data available to selected researchers! | 18 May 2018


ME/CFS Biobank, 17 May, 2018.

Funding call for researchers

In November 2017 – January 2018, the UK ME/CFS Biobank (UKMEB) raised around £17,000 from a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign was conducted with the assistance of partner organisations and charities.

We have decided to use these funds to release samples and data from the UKMEB free of charge to selected researchers.

We want to enable more research into ME/CFS, and show our donors a clear pathway by which their generosity can be turned into real research on ME/CFS.

Full details are available in this document: Call for Researchers.

If you are a member of the research community, we encourage you to share this page with those in your networks – we would particularly welcome applications from young researchers, researchers entering the field of ME/CFS, and researchers from localities where ME/CFS is under-recognised and/or research is particularly scarce.

If you have any enquiries, you can contact us on:

We look forward to hearing from anyone interested – and thank you, once again, to all of the generous donors who made this possible.
