2020 CMRC Research Conference in Bristol – Early Bird Registration Now Open | 06 November 2019


Russell Fleming, Content Manager, ME Association.

Early bird tickets are now available for the 2020 UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative (CMRC) conference, which takes place in Bristol on Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 March.

These tickets are for CMRC members only. If you are not a member but would like to join please see the information below.

Early bird booking is open until Monday 18 November at 5.00pm and registration fees begin at £250.

This is a fantastic opportunity for researchers, people affected by M.E. and clinicians to learn more about the latest published and unpublished research, meet potential collaborators and contribute to future developments.

  • The ME Association will be again offering student bursaries to successful applicants that will cover the cost of attending the conference. We will provide full details in due course.

The full research conference programme will soon be available, and we are delighted to have a strong international presence alongside key researchers from the UK, including:

  • Prof Chris Ponting, Edinburgh University, Scotland
  • Dr Sadie Whittaker, Chief Scientific Officer, Solve ME Registry
  • Prof Alain Moreau, University of Montreal, Canada
  • Heidi Nicholl, Emerge Australia
  • Prof Neil Harrison, Cardiff University, Wales
  • Dr Dan Peterson, United States

Once the sale of early bird tickets is over, non-members will also be able to register. You can book your place via the CMRC Eventbee page.
