  • clinical trials
  • big data, biomarkers and stratification
  • workshops which will include: community-based participatory research; severe M.E.; and a joint workshop on Postural Tachycardia Syndrome with PoTs UK

Day one, including early evening drinks reception, is open to all delegates and will close at 7.30pm. To provide space for unpublished data to be shared and for new collaborations to be explored, day two of the conference is open to researchers only, as is the dinner the night before.
The programme will be updated once new speakers are confirmed and will be made available.

The conference is normally streamed live & session recorded for playback on Youtube later. In previous years, attendance has been free to patients & carers.

"Anyone affected by M.E. who isn’t a research professional or research student can attend the conference as long as they are an Associate Member of the CMRC. There is no joining fee for Associate Membership."

"This year, we are asking Associate Members who attend the conference to make a financial contribution of £25 (the actual cost is £75 per person). In the event that we secure enough sponsorship, this fee may be reimbursed."

To attend the conference, please:
  • join the CMRC (free of charge) if you are not an Associate Member already
  • then register for a conference place.

I love seeing Dr. Patrick on there. This guy could help us a lot. Apparently he's a pretty big wig over there. He and an exercise physiologist visited Workwell and came away impressed at what they were finding with the exercise studies.
