14th Invest in ME Research International ME Conference
The 14th Invest in ME Research International ME Conference 2019 - IIMEC14 - took place on 31st May 2019 in London and
attracted delegates from twenty different countries - from Europe, North America and Australasia.
The conference day was preceded by the 9th Invest in ME Research International Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium - a two day closed researchers' meeting with almost 100 eminent researchers invited to attend from fourteen countries - and the full day Thinking the Future - Young/ECR Conference for young and early career investigators.
These three days prior to the IIMEC14 conference brought together researchers (both new to ME and experienced ME researchers) to collaborate and share knowledge for the benefit of future research into this disease by enhancing education and effectiveness of research efforts.
This year IiMER also celebrated its 13th year as a charity and reinforced the charity's efforts to increase international collaboration. The need for funding of biomedical research was underlined as the theme of ME Conference Week 2019 #InvestinMEresearch
Multiple international collaborations were formed via an incredibly positive atmosphere present during ME COnference Week 2019.
The IIMEC14 conference showed the major initiatives and research taking place to continue an international collaborative strategy for biomedical research into ME which Invest in ME Research has been championing over fourteen years.
The events organised by Invest in ME Research are based on a collaborative strategy of biomedical research into ME which we believe will progress this complex but exciting area of research and eventually lead to appropriate development of patient care and treatments for people with ME.
