Background: ME/CFS is a debilitating illness, which is estimated to affect up to 250,000 people in the UK alone, but significant challenges remain in its diagnosis and treatment. ME Research UK aims to change this. We commission and fund high-quality scientific (biomedical) investigation into the causes, consequences and treatment of ME/CFS. Founded in the year 2000, we have funded 65 research projects globally at a cost of over £4m and, most recently added a PhD level research scheme to our grant making activities.
