New post-mortem research partnership

The ME Association announces new post-mortem research partnership with Manchester Brain Bank

We believe that post-mortem research is a vital part of the Ramsay Research Fund portfolio and we are pleased to report that funding for a new post-mortem tissue research programme at the Manchester Brain Bank has been agreed.

We will be funding detailed examinations of the brain, spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion in at least 5 people with a firm diagnosis ME/CFS who are aged between 18 and 50 at the time of death. We will then review the results and decide whether to proceed with funding further examinations.

If you’d like to donate your body to ME/CFS research, a Statement of Intent is included in the article for you to download and complete.
