Invest in ME are an independent group campaigning for bio-medical research into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), as defined by WHO-ICD-10-G93.3. They have links nationwide and also internationally. Their aim is to bring together like-minded individuals and groups to campaign for research and funding to establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME. This should lead to the development of a universal "Thumb-Print Test" that can confirm the presence of ME and, subsequently, medical treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the illness. They are interested and active in promoting education on ME, publicising research into ME and lobbying for better provision of a properly funded biomedical research strategy for ME.
Invest in ME organise an annual international ME/CFS conference in London each May. These conferences have all been awarded maximum CPD accreditation and have attracted speakers and delegates from all over the world.
Their website contains news of research, of events and personal stories. Invest in ME is a voluntary organisation, free to join, and there are no membership fees.
