The Invest in ME Research Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium 9 (#BRMEC9) will take place in London over two days from 29th - 30th May 2019.
The ninth Colloquium aims to increase international collaboration in research into ME.

We again have representation from most of the main biomedical research initiatives now occurring throughout the world and also participation from USA's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). We supplement this with expertise from outside the field of ME to enable more opportunities to be established to further research.

The Invest in ME Research Colloquiums have spawned a number of positive initiatives over the years and are the most successful research meetings for forming new research initiatives for ME with multiple collaborative initiatives being formed across continents.

The research Colloquium in London will precede the IIMEC14 annual public international biomedical research conference on 31st May 2019. The conference is a full day event from 09.00 to 17.30.

The agenda section below will contain the conference schedule.

Participation in BRMEC* Events

If you are a biomedical researcher and are interested in attending the BRMEC* Colloquiums then please use our contact form to discuss this.

Attendance is by invitation only and decided by the charity based on progressing our goals of encouraging international collaboration in investigating this disease leading to discovery of aetiology and/or deveoplemnt of effective treatments.

We also invite participation from outside the field of ME where it may assist existing researchers.

IIMER are facilitating a strategy of biomedical research into ME. The charity is funding important high-quality research projects for ME in the UK with international collaboration.
Currently the main hub of research is at Quadram Institute Bioscience and University of East Anglia ) in the Norwich Research Park and we have funded research at UCL. These projects involve a gut microbiota project in Norwich and B cell research in London.

Research Colloquiums

In addition to the International ME Conference the charity also organises an annual International Research Colloquium which attracts researchers from around the world in order to discuss experiences and open up collaborations in order to find answers for this disease.
The charity has also initiated the Thinking the Future network for young/early career researchers and organises an annual conference to bring new talent into the field.

Centre of Excellence for ME

Translational biomedical research - an iterative feedback of information between the basic and clinical research domains in order to accelerate knowledge translation from lab to bedside and back to lab again - allows translation of findings in basic research more quickly and efficiently into medical practice to produce more meaningful health outcomes and facilitate the sharing of repositories and research-based facilities and laboratories. This is the model IiMER are attempting to promote in the development of a UL/European Centre of Excellence for ME based in Norwich.

European Collaboration

Invest in ME Research is one of the founder members of the European ME Alliance (EMEA) – a grouping of charities and patient organisations working together across Europe. Now fifteen European countries collaborating.

European Initiatives

In order to expedite research and clinical expertise for ME the charity has initiated the European ME Clinicians Council and the European ME Research Group to bring together the best European to work together and form credible and productive biomedical research strategies which will provide the best and quickest route for possible treatment(s)/cure(s) for this disease.

Let's Do It For ME

Let's do it for ME! is a patient-driven campaign to raise awareness and vital funds for a UK centre of excellence for translational biomedical ME research, clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment for patients, training and information for healthcare staff, based around the Norwich Research Park in the UK and aiming to work collaboratively with international biomedical researchers.
