Maureen Hanson of Cornell just scored one of the three NIH funded ME/CFS research centers in the U.S. Before she got that, though, Hanson picked up an NIH grant that enabled her to dig deeper into the energy issues of ME/CFS patients immune cells than anyone has before.
Find out what she’s found thus far in a Simmaron Research Foundation sponsored blog: Simmaron Patient Day Part II: Maureen Hanson, Energy and Your Immune Cells

I am thrilled to hear that NIH is starting to take ME/CFS seriously via $ 9.4MM.
Could you recommend a top clinic and/or physician specializing in ME treatments?
I was first infected with Epstein Barr when I was 18 y/o (1980) perhaps even before – when I did not know what it was). This 1st one took 1year to recover from —— had to drop classes in college etc- missed a semester of school . Since then the next relapse that was even worse took 1.5 years for me to heal from occurred in 2010. It was awful —- I missed a year of school. Most recently I was struck by ME/CFS on December, 2016. I was in bed for 6 months with 0% – 10% of may daily energy. I am at about 110% when I am health ,,,I have a doctor at NYU med center who is an expert in rheumatology ….he is good ,,, but I would appreciate a fresh look. Thanks.
On the east coast Doctor Levine and Dr. Enlander in New York. Dr. Klimas in Miami, Dr. Pociniki in Baltimore…I’m sure that I’m missing some. Dr. Natelson is conservative treatment wise but he’s tied into research. He’s in New York I believe. In Health Rising’s Treatment Resource section on the its Forums there are lists of ME/CFS doctors.
